PLDT Enterprise now provides the Cebu City Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Federation with reliable connectivity to support its free Wi-Fi program in several areas in the city.
PLDT Enterprise provided enterprise broadband connectivity to the student halls and work stations in 37 barangays in Cebu City.
The SK Federation of Cebu established learning hubs in several barangay halls which are equipped with computers, printers, and internet connectivity. These provide study and workspaces to those who do not have connectivity in their own homes.
“PLDT Enterprise has been actively supporting the initiatives of our local government units in launching free WiFi programs in aid of the connectivity needs of their constituents,” said Chito Franco, VP and head of Small and Medium Businesses, PLDT Enterprise. “In response to the recent unfortunate incident which affected most of Cebu province, we are happy to support the SK Federation of Cebu in providing access to free connectivity which will surely benefit a lot of Cebuanos, especially at this time of recovery.”
The program is in response to the call of constituents for reliable connectivity to support their education and livelihood.
“When we called for connectivity support, PLDT Enterprise was the first one to extend assistance, said Jessica Resch, president, Cebu City SK Federation. “With PLDT’s support for this project, we were able to create a functional program that was able to sustain productivity despite the double crises we’re currently battling.”
“I could not stress enough the importance of fast and strong connection, especially for students and businesses struggling to continue their daily activities despite the pandemic. With the support of PLDT Enterprise, we are glad that we can launch our free WiFi program to aid the needs of our fellow Cebuanos,” Resch said.
