DITO Home Free UNLI 5G WiFi Access, Given To 30,000 Public School Students in Taguig

To address the digital gap in public school areas and enable students to harness the advantages of 5G technology, DITO Telecommunity, the country's fastest-growing telecommunications provider, has equipped Taguig public schools with its fastest broadband internet service, DITO Home UNLI 5G WiFi.

Initially, DITO generously provided complimentary ultra-fast internet connections to six public schools: Cipriano P. Sta. Teresa Elementary School, Silangan Elementary School, Taguig Integrated School, Napindan Integrated School, South Daang Hari Elementary School, and Taguig National High School. DITO Home UNLI 5G WiFi was strategically installed in key areas of learning, teaching, and convergence, benefitting over 30,000 students. 

The project was made possible through the Adopt-A-School Program of Hands On Manila, a non-profit organization dedicated to volunteerism that contributes to nation-building.

According to Ms. Joyce Capacillo, Head of the Home Business Unit at DITO Telecommunity, this initiative transcends being a mere technical solution to students' struggles with limited internet access; it has become a source of hope for them to pursue their dreams and aspirations.

"We aim to support the education sector by providing equitable access to the internet. We recognize that the lack of internet connectivity not only limits students' access to educational resources but also hinders their ability to navigate and fully engage in a digital environment, a skill crucial for their future," said Capacillo.

"We've heard stories of students having a hard time securing their own mobile data just to complete their school requirements and online exams. Such stories opened our eyes to the daily hardships that young minds face every day, and here at DITO, our hope is to somehow alleviate this burden and ensure that no student gets left behind," she added.


The program launch was celebrated with leaders and representatives from the participating public schools and the Taguig local government. Among them were Dr. Flordelyn Umagat, Principal of Silangan Elementary School, Ms. Annette Cristobal, Principal of Cipriano P. Sta. Teresa Elementary School, Dr. Francia Patron, Principal of Napindan Integrated School, Ms. Kathryn Raymundo, HOM School Coordinator of Taguig National High School, Dr. Joselito Mataac, Principal of Taguig Integrated School, and Ms. Marieta Junio, Principal of South Daang Hari Elementary School.

According to Mr. Joselito Mataac, Teacher 1 from Taguig Integrated School, "DITO's 5G technology will surely empower our students to level up their skills and talents."

While DITO Home initially started in Taguig City, the initiative is poised to expand to other cities, aiming to provide an inclusive and empowering internet experience for all.

"We are delighted to collaborate with education and community stakeholders to power up public schools. We want to send the message that everyone is welcome here. There is significant value in joining efforts to strengthen connectivity in public schools because that also means connecting students to a brighter and more promising future," concluded Capacillo.
