Free Internet on Pag-asa Island, Municipality of Kalayaan
[Credits: Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT)-Luzon Cluster Three ] The arrival of the materials for the installation of free internet connection in Pag-asa Island.

The malls, restaurants, or other establishments offer free internet connection by using Wifi for their customers, mostly in cities. The students also prefer going into libraries where they can freely access surf educational websites. People have learned that the internet is powerful for discoveries, learning, and improves skills. It is a shortcut to learning new methods and gives more clarifications to our questions. Some applications installed in computers or mobile phones like games entertain kids as well as adults.

As technology evolves into making our life better than it used to be, it continues to be improved. The same goes for the window blind or the roller blinds, which can be controlled through a remote or using a voice command by tapping your phone, you can write by converting your voice into text, and many more. The internet has been roaming around every corner of the world. Transactions for banks, business, studies, and work, especially after the virus came.

Using the internet comes off with a price in your pocket. The more you use the internet, the more money you spent increases, which is a considerable disadvantage. On the other hand, remote areas have difficulties connecting due to the low signals.

The residents in Pag-asa (Thitu) Island have been dealing with higher prices to connect to the internet using data roaming. They have to pay in the amount of P500 per day to have a decent connection.

The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Luzon Cluster 3-Palawan Provincial Engineer, Engr. Virgo Pinangay, Municipal Mayor of Kalayaan Roberto Del Mundo, Vice Mayor Hon.Hermoso Ornopia, SB Members, and Local Government Units (LGU) Kalayaan IT personnel visited the island on March 31 to provide free internet connectivity in cluster-initiated VSAT installation.

There are also three units of laptops that they will turn over from the DICT Tech4ED Program. It will give Information in Computer Technology (ICT) free access in the Tech4ED Center that will be established soon on the island. It will allow residents and assigned uniformed personnel to access free internet on the whole island and help them deliver updated news on the Philippine Coast and contact their families on the mainland.

The Pag-asa Island or Thitu island belongs to the Municipality of Kalayaan, the second-largest island after the Spratly Island that the Philippines administers. It has an approximate area of 37.2 hectares (92 acres). It is bounded north by the North Danger Reef, Subi Reef to the west, and the Loaita and Tizard Banks to the south.

The Kalayaan Municipality was formally established as a Municipality under the Province of Palawan on 11 June 1978, by Presidential Decree 1596 series of 1978. It has four clay, four islands, and three reefs named Pag-asa, Likas, Parola, Lawak, Kota, Patag, Melchora Aquino, Panata, Balagtas, Ayungin, and Rizal.
