Smart won an award during the GSM Association’s Global Mobile Awards 2014 in Barcelona, Spain for its efforts in the aftermath of super-typhoon Yolanda. The telco’s SafePH disaster preparedness and emergency response program was recognized with an award for “Best Use of Mobile for Emergency or Humanitarian Efforts.”

The day after super-typhoon Yolanda (or Haiyan, as it was called internationally), Smart was one of the first on the ground to set up free call stations using satellite phones, giving survivors a means to communicate with their loved ones. In just a month, Smart was also able to restore network services in areas affected by the super-typhoon.


Meanwhile, Smart’s SmartNet app also won the “Operator OTT Service Launch Award” at the Awards. It was recognized as an innovative response to the challenges presented by the rise of OTT (over-the-top) services.
