Converge ICT Solutions and the city government will begin a pilot project of providing Internet connection to students in Northville, Barangay Cutud.

Converge ICT Solutions CEO Dennis Uy and Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. convened recently to iron out the proposal of Internet assistance to Angeles City students.

Lazatin wants to provide free Internet access to all public schools in the city using WiFi access with high quality Internet connection.

Public school students will now be connected to the world and digital education will further enhance their knowledge as they seek higher learning. The Internet is now an indispensable utility that should be accessed by Angeleños,” Lazatin said.

"Digital education in the new normal is inevitable due to circumstances. As Corporate Social Responsibility, this is our way of giving back to our community," Uy said.

He assured that Converge will provide uninterrupted learning with the connection they will be providing soon to educational institutions.

Online education is one of the options of the Department of Education in providing less contact or non-face-to-face learning for students.

Other modes include the synchronous/ asynchronous remote learning, blended learning, radio/TV-based learning, modular learning, and home schooling.
