186 free wifi zones to be installed in Davao de Oro

DAVAO DE ORO, June 22, 2020 (PIA)  - The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will install a total of 186 wifi free zones all over Davao de Oro.

 Governor Jayvee Tyron revealed this during the special episode of Serbisyo Oro Mismo on Friday adding that the selected areas are mostly schools.

Dubbed as Free Wi-Fi For All Project previously Pipol Konek, DICT and UNDP aim to contribute the digital divide in the Philippines by encouraging new and existing local and international service providers to expand internet coverage in 6,000 sites by the end of 2020.

 The 186 wifi zones in Davao de Oro is part of the Phase II implementation of the project, which is scheduled to start the installation this third quarter.

 Governor Uy said that the agencies will also shoulder the monthly subscription fee to the internet service providers; while the schools or local government unit wherever the wifi will be installed, will shoulder the cost of the electricity bill.

“Katong sa lugar na walay kurente, apil na sa package na butangan og solar,” he added. (For those areas that do not have electricity, the package includes solar panels.)

 The local chief executive is hoping that the wifi project will be placed in time for the opening of the schools on August 24.

 He also bared that the province’s Local School Board (LSB) diverted more than PhP 7 million fund to purchase transistor radios, wifi units, laptops for the districts, sound systems, and other materials and equipment for the alternative learning modalities that the Department of Education will implement.

 “Sa atong local school board, naa tay mga items na gi-fund kabahin sa sports like hosting sa DAVRAA ug support sa Palarong Pambansa, ug ubang infrastructure projects na gi-aprobahan, nga kinahanglan i-let go,” he said. (PIA11, Michael Uy) - Philippine Information Agency (PIA)
