A YEAR from now, Bantayanons living in the interior barangays of Bantayan town need not go to the shore or climb a tall tree to get a signal.
They can stay in the confines of their houses or in their tambayan and make/take calls, do Facebook and Instagram, play mobile games, watch YouTube and Netflix, and stay connected to the internet.
By 2022, Barangays Sillon in the west and Obo-ob in the south will each host a 4G LTE capable macro site, giving connectivity to anywhere within a radius of five kilometers.
You will need to upgrade your phones, Atty. Maria Jane Paredes, AVP/Center Head of Smart Corporate Communications and Public Affairs-Vismin, told Bantayanons in jest at the groundbreaking of the macro site in Sillon on April 22, 2021.
