Smart Network Advisory: #NinaPH

by Smart Communications | Dec 29, 2016
[29 Dec 2016] As of 3PM today, Smart has restored its 3G coverage in Virac, Catanduanes, providing voice, SMS, and mobile internet to users in the area. Smart has also completely restored its services in Romblon, one of the areas hardest hit by Typhoon Nina.
Meanwhile, about 93.5% of Smart’s cell sites in the 15 affected provinces in South Luzon are operating. The remaining outage is due in large part to damaged transmission links, and lack of commercial power particularly in Catanduanes, Marinduque, Camarines Sur, and Albay. Repair teams continue to be deployed in the areas affected by the typhoon, and restoration is being expedited. The PLDT Group also continues to provide Libreng Tawag and Libreng Charging stations in affected areas.
