Emerson “Emeng” Pascual, Gapan City’s incumbent mayor, announced that the city’s local government unit is subsidizing its resident’s internet connection.
The proclamation was done via a Facebook livestream last June 1 which highlight’s the importance of online learning during the time of crisis.
Although a privilege is open to all of the city’s constituents, only a small portion of the overall population is going to claim the benefit citing that only 10% have access to the internet and have laptops.

Not only is the favor going to benefit the affected residents by dramatically reducing their monthly dues, each qualified household will also be guaranteed a fast internet through fiber optic technology.
The benefit will come directly from the City Hall who will be providing a shared internet to other parties, while charging only a measly Php50 per month for a 5Mbps internet connection.
