To provide vital communication services in the aftermath of Typhoon Ulysses, PLDT wireless unit Smart Communications is giving free data and text/call credits to over 12 million affected Smart and TNT customers in Metro Manila and Luzon.
It had earlier provided similar efforts to customers in Southern Luzon, impacted by Super Typhoon Rolly. Sun Prepaid subscribers, which were recently rebranded to Smart Prepaid, also received the free credits.
“We will implement all viable means to support our countrymen and keep customers connected during these times,” says PLDT-Smart FVP & Group Head, Corporate Communications Cathy Yap-Yang. “Our goal is to keep everyone connected, as we restore telco services disrupted by the passage of typhoons.”
As of November 13, 2020, Smart says its mobile services in affected areas have been restored except in Marikina, Tarlac, and Bulacan where repairs are still ongoing.
