Telecoms firm Globe brings free calls, charging to provinces hit by Ursula

/ 08:50 PM December 26, 2019

CEBU CITY–Telecommunications firm Globe Telecom is providing free calls and charging services in Visayan provinces which bore the burnt of Typhoon Ursula shortly after restoring network coverage in the areas.

In a statement, Globe said these “Libreng Tawag and Libreng Charging” services are in Capiz, Leyte, Aklan, Northern Iloilo and Eastern Samar.

Communication in these areas had been difficult shortly after Ursula’s onslaught.

Strong winds caused widespread power outage and cut off fiber optics lines, bringing service disruption in the provinces of Eastern Samar, Leyte, Capiz and Aklan, including the world-famous resort island of Boracay.

On Thursday (Dec. 26), or two days after Ursula barreled its way through the island, network services were fully restored in the provinces of Masbate, Sorsogon, Leyte and Southern Leyte as well as Kalibo town in Aklan and parts of Samar province.

The company’s network operations team worked round the clock to fire up Globe cell sites in the three provinces hit by the typhoon to provide residents critical telecommunications services needed at this time.

“Globe is exerting all means possible to immediately restore critical telecommunications services in Boracay today, Dec. 26,” read a Globe statement.

More repair teams from Dumaguete City and Cebu were to arrive in Boracay to help restore services, the statement said.

“The company’s network operations team worked overtime to fulfill its commitment to fire up Globe cell sites in the areas affected by the typhoon to provide residents critical telecommunications services especially during this Yuletide season,” it added.
