PLDT Enterprise donated 665 units of pocket WiFi devices that come with Smart GIGA Study plans for Lasallian Associate Partners of De La Salle Lipa in Batangas.
The SMART pocket WiFi devices enable a seamless connection between teachers and students amid the pandemic, as part of augmenting the La Salle Lipa’s ‘BorderFree Education’ system.
“Through PLDT, we are extending our virtual infrastructure beyond the physical campus into the homes of our teachers. Thus the name ‘BorderFree Education,” shared Ms. Dfezie Torres-Tipan, Chief of Strategic Services of De La Salle Lipa.
SMART’s Giga Study plans are a prepaid package that serves exclusively to the education sector, providing daily data allocations for online learning tools needed to today’s new normal of learning.
“We hope to expand our partnerships with the other schools and academic institutions to make e-learning not just as the band-aid solution today, but instead the catalyst to elevate our education system to the next level of learning,” said ePLDT President & CEO, SVP & Head of PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups Jovy I. Hernandez.
