CEBU, Philippines (31 December 2021) —  Over 100,000 of the affected customers of the Visayan Electric (Veco) have now been energized as 64 percent of its power line segments within its franchise area have been restored already.

In its update Thursday, Veco was able to energize 127,014 out of the 474,182 affected customers already.

This development came after 348 or 64 percent out of the 544 power line segments within its franchise area have already been restored.

Cebu City Councilor Joel Garganera, the Cebu City Council’s chairman on the committee on energy, in a briefing with Veco’s top officials yesterday said that 30 percent of Veco’s franchise customers in the city will be energized before this year ends.

Currently, there are now 27.73 percent of its customers in Cebu City that has energized or 59,706 of the 215,339 estimated customers.

“Before the end of the year, 30 percent of the franchise customers will be energized,” said Garganera.

By January 10, it is projected that 80 percent of its customers will already be energized, but it will take until the end of January 2022 to fully energize everyone.

In Mandaue City, it is now 29.35 percent energized, Consolacion at 13.44 percent, Liloan at 21.68 percent, Talisay City at 22.49 percent, Minglanilla at 30.38 percent,  Naga City at 23.57 percent, and San Fernando with 25.66 percent. — GMR (FREEMAN)

The number of electric companies who sent trucks and crews to (partially) restore power here on Siargao was so appreciated. They came from Cotabato, Bukidnon, CDO, and even as far away as Basilan. The

Unbelievably incompetent, not just to create a system so easily wrecked but one that takes over a month to fix.

Shoppee too, still can't ship to Cebu City. 

I just bought a ton of goods on Lazada which resumed operations last week.

I think it's worse than that..  it's been 23 days now..  and to my knowledge there isn't much information about WHEN they'll be reconnected by PLDT.  One person I know using PLDT in the province for call centre work just keeps getting same message again and again when she calls "repair will be completed in xx hours".  Not only did it not happen..  but after 23 day the recording still plays on.  The typhoon damage is one thing..  and one could argue it's an act of God.. and outside anyones control.   but the way they recover and communicate is another entirely..  and THAT is incompetent for sure..

What about the PLDT issued SIM card, do you have this and shouldn't that work.

We got hit real hard and lost our roof in 2014, no electricity, no internet but we still had a phone connection because of this SIM card.

I didn't mention yesterday when I posted about the power being returned.

PLDT (fibre) fired up ok as well.

Very happy Camper after enduring one Bar (if that) on Smart .It was interesting that I purchased a Globe Sim as recommended by other's.But, Whilst that got me 3 bars stable, speed was either flat out or zero.....

Would it be wise to hold off sending a balikbayan box at this time?

According to shippingcart there are delays to BB boxes. By ship.
I just sent a small box via air to myself and they had that notice.

Nope,But I'm thinking about it.. We lost power last night.

Still off. And ..As SMART and Globe are useless (at my house location as far as signal strength) I'm thinking if trying DITTO..

I'll keep you posted...

I have 4 bars with Dito in Talamban. Data is slower than normal but bearable for what I use it for.  I have no PLDT connection yet although my neighbours connection works.  Just.
