Globe ready to serve customers despite rotational brownouts

Cell towers, the group noted in a statement, are equipped with lithium batteries that could last for two hours. Generator sets are also on standby to continue operations if the power remains out for longer than expected, said Peter Tan, Globe Senior Vice President for Network Operations.

According to Tan, the telco has been on high alert status since the power blackouts were reported on the main island.

Its personnel and resources are also ready to be deployed for all possible scenarios, the official added.

Our cell sites are already provisioned with back-up batteries, fuel cells, or combination of either batteries and generators. We also have on standby, a number of portable, trailer-mounted generator sets that we can deploy anywhere they may be needed, Tan said.

Globe advised its customers to prepare also for power interruptions either by having generators on hand or charging their phones, laptops, tablets, power banks, and other gadgets before the scheduled interruptions.

They can also use an uninterruptible power supply or UPS to power up their modems, the company added.
