Converge ICT sustains e-learning of Filipino students with Xcellence ProgramBy: Converge Admin | 11 Jun 2021
MANILA, Philippines, June 8, 2021 — The pandemic has definitely changed the Filipinos’ way of living. As the quarantine situations continue to be a challenge, distance learning through online platforms remains to be the trend for millions of students in the country. This new normal has accelerated a much needed emphasis on digital literacy and digital tools especially in the education sector. With this sudden shift to e-learning, improving the digital skills of students and educators has never been more essential.
Transitioning to this new way of learning has its fair share of problems. Students and teachers struggle with connectivity, financial resources, and “digital divide” or the limited access to digital technologies. Significantly increasing demand for fast, reliable, and consistent internet connection since the onset of the pandemic is also evident in the country.
Keeping its commitment to provide greater speed and bandwidth through pure end-to-end fiber internet service, Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. partners with Savers Appliances to launch the Converge Xcellence program.
“We recognize the need of students and educators for reliable internet plans, while ensuring flexibility in payment terms and affordability of offers to match the requirements for e-learning activities,” said Converge ICT Chief Operating Officer Jesus Romero.
The Converge Xcellence program enables an easy application to Converge’s internet plans through a no cash out offer. Aside from internet connectivity and easy payment options, this program also addresses the need of students and educators for affordable devices. In partnership with Savers Appliances, a leading appliance retailer, Converge Xcellence program offers cash discounts and installments for select laptops and gadgets at participating Savers Appliances branches.
“Apart from internet connectivity, students and educators also need devices for their e-learning, but affordability remains to be a challenge,” shared Savers Appliances Deputy General Manager Jansen Ivan Uy. “Our partnership with Converge solves this through an easy-on-the-pocket offer exclusive to applicants of the Xcellence Program.”
The limited-time offering from June 1 to August 31, 2021 is open to students, parents, and educators applying for residential subscriptions within the serviceable areas of Converge. To avail of the promo, the applicant must submit proof of enrolment or registration to be qualified.
