Para makasagap ng signal! South Cotabato LGU gives materials for ‘study area’ of students climbing hill


The South Cotabato provincial government has provided construction materials for a “study area” of college students who have been climbing a hill for internet connection to attend online classes.

The local government turned over Friday, October 30, the materials to the student beneficiaries with the study area located in the geographically isolated highlands of Barangay Ned Lake Sebu.

Quoting Jessie L. Chavez, one of the students, the provincial government said the top of the hill is the only place where internet signal is strong.

The beneficiaries include nine students – five males and four females – who are enrolled at different colleges and universities, such as the Sultan Kudarat State University and South East Asian Institute of Technology.
