Globe Telecom has extended its FREE, unlimited GoWiFi service to Robinsons Ilocos, Robinsons Laoag, and Robinsons Tuguegarao until today, Wednesday, September 19.
It also announced that it has restored its network coverage in Baggao, Cagayan, the town that suffered the most damage from Typhoon Ompong (Mangkhut).
The company’s network operations team worked overtime to fulfill its commitment to fire up Globe cell sites in Baggao on September 17, providing residents critical telecommunications services.
This means all Globe cell sites in all localities in Cagayan, Apayao, and Ilocos Norte are now fully restored. Globe said it is exerting all means possible to immediately restore critical telecommunications services in five more municipalities in Abra.
Typhoon Ompong impacts telco service disruptions
Widespread commercial power outages and multiple fiber cuts following strong winds brought about by Typhoon Ompong caused service disruptions in Cagayan, Apayao, Abra, and Ilocos Norte.
To continue assisting affected communities, Globe deployed more Libreng Tawag and free charging station as of 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 18, in the following areas: Barangay Halls of Nambaran Tabuk, Bulanao Tabuk, and Magsaysay Tabuk in Kalinga; SMC Warehouse in Kalinga; Dagupan Public Market Tabuk in Kalinga; Baguio Athletic Bowl; Itogon Training Center in Baguio; Evi Gas Station in Tuguegarao; Globe Cell Site Centro East Ballesteros in Cagayan Valley; Onon Hub in Sta.
