At the request of Guam’s governor, NTT will deploy 10 network engineers and 12 bucket trucks from the company’s headquarters in Japan to assist with recovery after the typhoon caused major outages among Guam’s telecommunications operators.

“We were happy to assist in whatever capacity we could from the federal side,” said James Moylan, delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives for Guam. “For our island to recover effectively requires a team effort, and this endeavor clearly emphasized that. Having accessible data would certainly help many families take another step towards normalcy.”

“On behalf of the People of Guam, we extend our heartfelt thanks to all those uplifting our island in our time of need,” said Guam Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “By supporting our telecommunications restoration efforts, you are directly helping to restore normalcy to thousands of Guam families. Si Yu’os Ma’åse!”

DOCOMO PACIFIC, regional leader in telecommunications services, was the first to launch mobile 5G in Guam and Saipan in 2020; since then, the company has continued to maintain its high-speed mobile network in the region.

“NTT is proud to have such a strong relationship with the local government, businesses and residents of Guam,” said David Jeppsen, chief of global public affairs at NTT. “Our engineers are undertaking this task with the goal of not only returning the island’s networking infrastructure to its former strength, but also upgrading it with enhanced capabilities through more advanced technologies.”

In addition to the technical support, NTT will make a donation to the American Red Cross to assist those still impacted by the powerful storm. The American Red Cross continues to provide thousands of meals per day along with relief supplies to help survivors in their recovery.
