Students face challenge of buying internet load
As the country faces another school year of blended learning, teachers and their students still face problems in buying internet loads, according to a report by GMA News.
Calvin, a five-year-old, said he is having trouble finding signals for his online classes. His mother, Roanne, also said they are having difficulties in buying internet loads for the classes.
Teacher Nestor, who was trying to stretch a meager salary, said he received a 30-gigabyte load allowance which was only good for three days.
He thus has to shell out P500 per week to buy more load to augment the rest of his online classes.
