Extends payment due dates, offers free connectivity, telehealth consultation to affected customers
Globe is also setting up three Libreng Tawag, Libreng Charging, and Libreng WiFi sites in Daraga, Guinobatan, and Malilipot, expected to be fully operational starting June 16, Friday. These efforts are part of Globe’s comprehensive disaster readiness initiative aimed at facilitating crucial communication lines during disasters.
In anticipation of possible power disruptions, Globe’s technical and support teams have primed backup generators at key facilities. This step is taken to ensure steady delivery of network services in areas impacted by the volcano’s unrest.
Globe Prepaid users will get free one-day access to GoUnli with unli calls and text to all networks, 100MB access for all apps and sites, and another 100MB access for Facebook, Viber, Whatsapp and Twitter.
To ensure that the public has access to vetted information about volcanic activity, Globe has also enabled free data access to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) and the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) websites.
As authorities continue to monitor Mayon’s heightened activity, Globe strongly advises residents in at-risk areas to be prepared by storing essential supplies, creating emergency kits, and keeping mobile devices fully charged. Residents in danger zones must also heed government-led evacuation.
Phivolcs earlier raised Alert Level 3 over Mayon, requiring residents within the 6-km radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) to evacuate due to potential risks of pyroclastic density currents (PDCs), lava flows, rockfalls, and other volcanic hazards.
In these challenging times, Globe remains committed to helping affected communities and working hand-in-hand with government agencies in disaster response. The company assures the public of its continuous efforts to disseminate critical updates and advisories to maintain safety and awareness.
