Visayas network operational despite earthquake, says Globe Telecom

Globe Telecom’s network in the Visayas region did not sustain any significant damage from the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit the region Tuesday morning based on the initial assessment made by its local network personnel.

“Our network continues to be operational to provide critical telecommunication services for rescue and relief operations affected by the earthquake,” said Robert Tan, Globe Chief Technical Adviser. Initial reports showed key Globe facilities in Lahug, Talisay, Abacus, San Remegio, Dauin, Cadiz, Iloilo, Roxas, Ormoc and Tacloban incurred no damage and are fully operational.

Still, power outage in earthquake-damaged areas like Tagbilaran in Bohol may adversely affect operations in some of the company’s base stations,Tan said.

Store operations in Cebu and Bohol have been temporarily suspended as employees were evacuated.
