Globe issues statement over PLDT lines mishap
Globe reached out to us and gave their statement regarding the PLDT lines mishap that recently transpired resulting to some of their subscribers losing access to voice and data services in certain areas of Quezon City.
“Such accidents do happen in the course of drilling and excavation works to embed terrestrial fiber cables in our public roads. It is inherent in our line of business and all telcos experience these hazards at any time. Fiber cuts could be caused by any telco contractor or even the DPWH which is why built-in redundancies in our respective networks are important,” said Yoly Crisanto, SVP for Corporate Communications of Globe Telecom
Their statement also added that Levinson, the contractor who accidentally drilled into one of PLDT’s lines, has already deployed several teams to expedite the repair of the fiber cut and should already be finished by 5PM earlier today.
