Smart restores mobile services in Virac, Catanduanes and Romblon province
MANILA, Dec. 29 (PNA) — Smart Communications has restored its 3G coverage in Virac, Catanduanes which provides voice, SMS, and mobile Internet to users in the area.
Mobile services were also restored in Romblon which is 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 operational with the remaining outage due to damaged transmission links and lack of commercial power particularly in the provinces of 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 free call and charging stations in the affected areas. (PNA)
