You can give a reprieve to Globe for its inability to shorten the service interruption last Monday with this giveaway. You can call this a damage-control mechanism or a public relation stunt. Globe is giving FREE texts and call minutes to all of its subscribers as a way of “making up for the May 9 service interruption” within the next few days.
Here’s the full SMS text from Globe that is sent to my number:
“Globe is sending you FREE texts and call minutes within the next few days. This is our way of saying “thank you” for being with Globe and our way of making up for the May 9 service interruption. Globe will send you a text no later than May 17 as soon as this special service is available for your use. This is to show that you are truly important to us.”
I was not so affected during the Globe’s interruption because my world doesn’t only revolve around the GLOBE. I’m a SMART guy that could find ways under the SUN. I have a PLDT landline and a portable landline and connected via DSL. So, my communication lines were there except for Globe. 🙂
