Public Advisory: Leyte Earthquake
Public Company Information:
Globe Telecom mobile services—voice, sms, data—are operating normally in majority of the areas hit by the 6.5 magnitude earthquake that struck Jaro, Leyte. The tremor, which resulted in the loss of commercial power, initially disrupted services in some areas in Leyte. Globe was able to immediately restore services by utilizing generator sets in sites affected by the power loss. However, some areas in Tacloban City as well as Kawayan, Biliran, Liloan, and Thomas Oppus in Southern Leyte may experience poor mobile signal. The company’s technical teams are now closely monitoring the network to ensure the normalization of operations in all sites. -Yoly Crisanto, Globe Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications.
