PRESS STATEMENT (January 20, 2016) — Globe Telecom will comply with the directive of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) to temporarily suspend mobile services in some areas of Dinagyang festivities in Iloilo City.

Globe General Counsel Atty. Froilan Castelo said the company will always comply with directive of the NTC, particularly in relation to public safety and security. “Similar to the directive we received from the NTC during the recent Black Nazarene and Sinulog events, we are compelled to temporarily suspend mobile services in some event areas of the Dinagyang festival and we would like to appeal for our customers’ understanding,” Castelo said.

The Dinagyang Festival is a religious and cultural festival in Iloilo City, Philippines held on the fourth Sunday of January, or right after the Sinulog in Cebu and the Ati-Atihan Festival in Kalibo, Aklan. It is held both to honor the Santo Niño and to celebrate the arrival on Panay of Malay settlers and the subsequent selling of the island to them by the Atis. For this year, it will be held from January 20 to the 22nd.
