Field teams bring Christmas cheer as more areas restored

Globe is the first to restore network services in 16 municipalities and other areas across Palawan. Host to one of the country’s 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 our field teams to trek for several hours in order to reach our cell sites.
