Isabela City Reactivates ICT CouncilFebruary 23, 2023
Upon the directions of Mayor Sitti Djalia Turabin-Hataman and as a follow-through of the previous meetings conducted with Globe Telecom, Isabela City Vice Mayor Engr. Jhul Kifli Salliman led the engagement with the team from Globe Telecom, February 22, at the Sangguniang Panlungsod Session Hall, who were in the city for validation and network assessment.
The discussion centered on priority areas that necessitate urgent action from Globe, especially in the areas of connectivity and signal strength, mobile internet, and SIM registration. For their part, the contingent from Globe identified the several projects they have in the pipeline to service the admittedly saturated network of Isabela City, including building additional cell sites.
Meanwhile, City Tourism Officer Claudio Ramos II took the opportunity to invite the telecom giant for a possible partnership in the upcoming Sakayan Festival.
Vice Mayor Salliman was joined by Councilor Khaleedsher Asarul who is the chair of the SP committee on information and communication, Executive Assistant Joel Zanoria, Isabela City IT Officer Zulfikar Sabdulla, and representatives from the Office of the City Mayor, City Information Office, IT Division, and LEDIPO.
The team from Globe Telecom included District Business Head Ian Valencia, Area Operations Head Richard Galicha, Business Development Manager Remus Mirabueno, Zamboanga and BASULTA Area Head Engr. Everard Penaflor, WestMindanao RgPM Engineer Peter Jeck Pacudan, Business Development Expert Roel B. Alabat, and Operations Manager Clark Lorenzo. Previously, they were in the City of Lamitan to undertake the same task. (Words by M. Guerrero/Photos by M. Santos, CIO).
