PLDT, Inc. and Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) have provided connectivity support to various free co-working and learning spaces in areas severely affected by Super Typhoon Odette in Bohol and Cebu.
These initiatives aim to assist online learners and residents in work-from-home (WFH) setups but are still challenged by the unavailability of electricity and stable internet connection at their homes. In partnership with PLDT and Smart, the co-working spaces set up by local government units enable residents to latch on to Libreng WiFi powered by PLDT Fibr and avail of Smart’s Libreng Tawag and Text services.
PLDT and Smart have powered the following co-working spaces in Cebu and Bohol with seamless and free connectivity support:
Bohol Tropics Resort, Tagbilaran City
*Talisay City Hall
PLDT and Smart’s commitment to connecting people during times of crisis highlights their dedication not only to business and connectivity services but also to their responsibility as corporate citizens. By leveraging their expertise as well as resources, these telecommunications giants have exemplified how public and private sector collaboration can make a significant difference in the lives of those affected by natural disasters. Through their ongoing support, PLDT and Smart have shown that they are more than just providers of communication services; they are also pillars of resilience and support in times of need.
