The Palawan Sangguniang Panlalawigan is pushing to make the province a beneficiary of the “Broadband ng Masa” project of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).

The SP passed Proposed Resolution No. 544-22 na entitled: “A resolution requesting Honorable Secretary Ivan John Uy of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) for the inclusion of Palawan in its BroadBand ng Masa Project (BBMP).”

The said measure was authored by Board Member Juan Antonio E. Alvarez and Board Member Maria Angela V. Sabando.

Alvarez said that the project may be implemented next year. The project aoms to provide stable internet connection to geographically-isolated and disadvantaged areas

“Noong time na dumating si US Vice President Kamala Harris, I was seated next to the daughter of Sec. Ivan Uy of DICT kasama po si BM Angela,” said Alvarez

“Napag-usapan namin ang kakulangan ng internet sa mga barangay natin sa buong lalawigan ng Palawan and nabanggit niya sa amin na mayroong program next year ang DICT na magbibigay sila ng tinatawag na ‘BroadBand ng Masa’, this is like magpapadala sila ng mga machine sa mga barangay para magkaroon ng libreng internet,” he added.

Alvarez said that a resolution requesting for the inclusion in the project is needed before an area becomes a beneficiary in the project.
