TUBOD, Lanao del Norte (19 September) -- Intel Philippines has donated a facility that would boost the Information and Communication system in the province.
Costing P1 million, the Wy-Max Facility is a pilot project initiated by Intel and is aimed to upgrade government system on transactions especially in offices with heavy traffic of clients.
According to Mr. Carlo Subido of Intel, his group has already set up the equipment to take off soon in other areas using the latest cable-less technology and has a reach capability of 50 kilometers.
Currently, the system has been servicing offices like the Provincial Planning Office and Administrators Office. He also mentioned that they choose Tubod town as pilot municipality in congruence with the eagerness of Congressman Abdullah Dimaporo and Governor Khalid Dimaporo to uplift services to their constituents. All departments of the Provincial Government and the Municipal Government would maximize the Wy-Max system and soon would connect its facility to the province's 22 municipalities.
Officials here lauded Intel for propelling services instrumental for country side development. The initiative of Intel would be a big leap for various LGU's here to also propagate services that is not only feasible but requires timeliness, especially on daily transactions. It was noted also that the National Computer Center has been undertaking proactive measures to encourage municipal government on establishing portals over the internet. (Lanao del Norte LGU) [top]
