BrandedUp in partnership with
Globe is the first to restore network services in 16 municipalities and other areas across Palawan.
Host to one of the countrys most beautiful beaches, Palawan experienced the tail end of Typhoon Odette's wrath, downing critical telecommunications infrastructure.
Scattered debris and collapsed bridges hindered travel causing Globes field teams to trek for several hours in order to reach their cell sites.
In San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, reinforcements from South Luzon have arrived paving the way for needed immediate repairs. Despite spending three nights on-ground, the team continues to work 24/7 to ensure network restoration in the area.
Mindanao is now closer to completion, while Visayas restoration efforts remain in full throttle.
The teams are working tirelessly on simultaneous cell site repairs across different areas affected by typhoon Odette.
Free and unlimited GoWiFi
Globe is also providing free and unlimited GoWiFi in select malls, government offices and airports in Visayas (Aklan, Antique, Bohol, Capiz, Cebu, Iloilo, Leyte, Negros Occidental and Oriental, ) and Mindanao (Agusan del Norte, Bukidnon, Camarines Sur, Davao del Norte and Sur, Lanao del Norte, Maguindanao, Misamis Occidenta and Oriental, South Cotabato, and Zamboanga del Note and Sur) areas affected by Typhoon Odette.

Since deployment of relief efforts in several provinces in Visayas and Mindanao, Globe, along with its partners Ayala Foundation, Inc., GMA Kapuso Foundation, and Rise Against Hunger Philippines have already reached over 3,600 families.

Areas reached by the relief efforts so far include Bacolod, Bislig, Butuan City, Cagayan de Oro, Dinagat Islands, Dumaguete, Iloilo, Maasin City and Sogod in Southern Leyte, several areas in Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental, Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte, and Surigao del Sur.
