ANGELES CITY — Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr. said at least 41 elementary schools and 9 high schools will soon have free Internet connections as part of the city government program to provide digital education to students in public schools.

Mayor Lazatin said the public school students will now be connected to the world and this digital education will further enhance their knowledge as they seek higher learning. “Internet is now an indispensable utility that should be accessed by all of Angelenos,” said Mayor Lazatin.

The free Wifi connections to all public schools was conceptualized by Mayor Lazatin in coordination with Converge ICT Solutions Inc. who agreed to provide Internet connection for free as part of its corporate social responsibility.

“It’s our way of giving back to the community where we started,” said Uy, who is originally from Angeles City.

Converge will infuse $1.4 billion in the development of its fiber optic backbones in northern and southern Luzon, some $350 million dollars of which alone will be spent in Angeles City.

Mayor Lazatin has met with Uy on Wednesday afternoon at the city hall. Uy said he will support the undertakings of the city government led by Mayor Lazatin.

For a start, Uy will donate the proceeds from the sale of some 400-kilometer copper wire to the further development of ONA facilities.

Converge ICT is currently taking down the old Internet and cable wires made of copper as the firm shifted to the pure end-to-end fiber optic technology in Angeles City.

Converge is currently laying out its sea cables that will connect it to several islands in the country such as Cebu City.

Among the public schools that will be provided free Internet connection are:
