Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo last Wednesday led the switch-on ceremony that would provide access to free Wi-Fi at the Hermenegilda Gloria Memorial Elementary School in barangay Banilad, a beneficiary of the country’s Free Wifi in Public Schools Project initiated by the Department of Information & Communications Technology, the Negros Oriental Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and the Rotary Club of Dumaguete.

The Mayor congratulated the teachers and learners of Hermenegilda Gloria School for their access to Wifi that will allow them to participate in classes, do research, or submit their outputs online.

The free Wi-Fi project will be funded by an annual budget of P5 million from the City.

The areas to benefit from the free Wi-Fi program are all buildings and open spaces owned, operated, and maintained by the City government of Dumaguete.

The Mayor expressed hope that through the free Wi-Fi program, people will now be able to reconnect with their friends, relatives and colleagues through various online platforms and social media that have helped reduce physical interactions to prevent the spread of CoViD-19.  (PR)
