But what we will always guarantee to be consistent is our ability to deliver a quality education, and we will support our faculty’s effort through this endeavor with PLDT Enterprise."
Smart’s GIGA Study plans are especially developed prepaid packages that cater exclusively to the academe.

All these efforts are to enable e-Learning for their teachers and students so they can continue experiencing top quality education even during this time," says PLDT Enterprise Corporate Relationship Management Head Dick Perez.
Through this partnership with PLDT Enterprise, Emilio Aguinaldo College is ensuring that its two campuses have the necessary connectivity to continue remote learning for their home-based students.
Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO and SVP & Head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups adds, "This initiative is part of our ongoing efforts in the PLDT Group to redefine the future of learning. Our services will help EAC deliver lessons and stay connected with their home-based students."

Campos, Jr., Vice President for Administration Dr. Lorenzo C. Lorenzo, Vice President for Academic Affairs EAC Manila Dr. Ellen San Nicolas Salac, Vice President for Academic Affairs EAC Cavite Dr. Rebecca C. Miranda, Comptroller Julieta M.
