NTC to PTEs: Ensure Continued Telco Services

The National Telecommunications Commission issued a memorandum directing all public telecommunications entities to ensure that there will be no telecommunications service interruption in the areas affected by Typhoon Tisoy (Kammuri).

The memorandum stated that sufficient numbers of technical and support personnel must be deployed by the telco companies in addition to standby generators that have extra fuel, tools, and spare equipment.

NTC Commissioner Gamaliel A. Cordoba further directed all the telco companies to make their mobile cell sites ready for deployment anytime to the affected areas.

He also reminded the companies to submit status reports of their respective networks and facilities.

As per PAGASA’s severe weather bulletin dated December 1, Typhoon Tisoy was moving West at 20 kph, with maximum sustained winds of 140 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 170 kph.

Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal no. 1 has been raised in Metro Manila and Pampanga, where ongoing tournaments of the 30th SEA Games are being held among others. 

With this, companies were told to coordinate with NTC’s focal person for SEA Games Director Jovita V. Chongco as they monitor weather advisories from PAGASA.
