“We are pleased to secure this partnership with PLDT Enterprise to help our students navigate education in the new normal,” says PHINMA Education Chief Operations Officer (COO) Dr. Raymundo P. Reyes. “Technology that facilitates flexible learning is one of our strategies to continue delivering quality education, in spite of limitations in conducting face-to-face classes.”

“PLDT Enterprise’s SMART Giga Study data plans are really geared toward providing support for students and teachers.

With SMART Giga Study data plans, students and teachers are given access to the basic programs they need for collaborative learning and individual research, such as Microsoft 365 and G Suite by Google. “These programs will help everyone accomplish their work easily and also be able to communicate and collaborate in real time,” added Hernandez.

PHINMA Education is also receiving a value-added service from PLDT Enterprise which includes a free SMS Messaging Suite for every campus per month. In addition, free Smart WiFi access points are being deployed for PHINMA Education students.

“Ensuring that students can learn anytime, anywhere is part of a big ecosystem which requires the educational institutions to work with both the private and public sector,” said Alfredo S. Panlilio, PLDT Chief Revenue Officer and Smart President and CEO.

“This is the ecosystem we have to build and we at PLDT-Smart are forging this partnership with PHINMA Education and are continuously engaging with other schools across the country to help the education sector address the challenges for flexible learning,” Panlilo added.
