MANILA - Globe Telecom said Friday telecommunication services were restored in some critical areas in Visayas and Mindanao to help residents connect with their loved ones this Christmas in the wake of Typhoon Odette's devastation.

In a statement, Globe said network services are now back up in Mactan Airport Cebu, Siargao Airport and Surigao Airport.

"Restoring services in airports is part of Globe’s priority in its post-Typhoon Odette infrastructure repairs, seeing its importance in bridging areas affected by the typhoon, and its residents, during the holiday season," the Ayala-led telco said.
