BrandedUp in partnership with
Globe has restored services in Eastern Samar, Agusan del Norte, and Surigao del Sur, as more areas become operational. Restoration efforts in typhoon-affected areas in Mindanao are progressively nearing completion.
In the Visayas, certain areas remain challenged due to several damaged roads, bridges, and power lines. Globe’s network engineers on site are working to bring services back to normal.
Globe field teams are currently on ground in Siargao—another hard-hit area—and are putting up the needed equipment to restore mobile services.
In some parts of Palawan, particularly north of Puerto Princesa, collapsed bridges have posed delays in restoration efforts, particularly hauling materials to provide temporary aerial fiber in these areas.
Globe is working closely with respective LGUs in clearing operations and infrastructure repairs to get communication lines in typhoon-hit areas.

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 in Mindanao areas (Agusan del Norte, Bukidnon, Camarines Sur, Davao del Norte and Sur, Lanao del Norte, Maguindanao, Misamis Occidental and Oriental, South Cotabato, and Zamboanga del Norte and Sur) affected by Typhoon Odette.
