No signal jamming for Sinulog, says Rama

Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama has declared that network signals will remain open during the Fiesta Señor and Sinulog celebrations on January 14 and 15, calling signal jamming “jurassic.”

Prior to the declaration, the National Telecommunications Commission had already directed telecom companies to turn off their respective signals in certain parts of Cebu City during important events on the specified dates.

But police authorities, who are tasked to implement the same, passed the ball to Rama, saying the local chief executive would have to make the final decision. (

All lines of communication should be kept open throughout all religious activities and the Sinulog grand showdown, Rama told The FREEMAN.

One of his justifications was to allow visitors and revelers to contact loved ones while the events were taking place.
