CAGAYAN de Oro City–“Connectivity is a problem by all, not only by schools but also even in households. We should intervene, if necessary, interfere so that we can find solutions and bridge the gap between the concern of connectivity among students, schools and business transactions in our locality.”
This was pointed out by Councilor Ian Mark Q. Nacaya in his special report during the regular session Monday presided over by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy relative to the prevailing problem on poor internet connections in the city.
Nacaya said he has been receiving several complaints pertaining to the weak and sometimes strong but intermittent signal that has been provided by PLDT, Globe, Smart and all other providers for internet connections especially now that some private schools have already started their online classes.
“As we all know not only schools but also online businesses have been using internet connections for simple reason, to provide services, transactions thru this facility and to provide learning. But how can our students learn from this new normal with online classes if there is no connection?” cited the councilor.
The councilor would also like to know the reason why the providers could not provide for a large number of people even if they have the strong signal or connection.
The matter was referred to the committee on public utilities chaired by Councilor Teodulfo E. Lao, Jr., for immediate and appropriate action. (SP/JAOclarit)
