Smart Public Advisory on Iloilo’s Dinagyang Festival

by SMART Public Affairs | Jan 20, 2017
[20 January 2017] We are temporarily suspending mobile phone services of Smart, TNT, and Sun on January 21 (Saturday) and 22 (Sunday) at the main Dinagyang Festival activity and parade areas in Iloilo City — specifically, Plaza Libertad, Freedom Grandstand, Iloilo Provincial Capitol, Mabini, Quezon, Iznart, and Rizal streets, Iloilo Business Park, Esplanade 1 & 2, The Atria, Plazuela and SM City.

Nearby areas and surrounding municipalities may also be affected if mobile phone signals coming from cell sites servicing these places reach the main festival zones. We shall provide further information as needed during the festival.

We have been instructed to take this action by the National Telecommunications Commission and the Philippine National Police in the interest of public safety.

We will restore our mobile phone services as soon as we are given the go-signal by the authorities.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
