from: Good news: The St. Paul University Internet Center was launched just recently--on Sept. 10, 1997. It is the first high bandwidth Internet connection to be established in Region 02, having a 64 kbps leased line connection from WaveNET Philippines, a premier ISP based in Makati, Metro Manila. The SPU Internet Center is also the first Internet estableshment to offer internet services in Cagayan Valley, having a facility of some 50 workstations for use by the SPU admnistration, faculty, students, and to walk-in surfers (outsiders) for a minimal fee. Limited and dedicated dial up connections are also offered to outside clients. And I'm glad to inform that an Ilokano, a Vizcayano, and a genuine Dupax folk at that, is one of the two personnel administering the SPU Internet Center at present, acting as a systems admnistrator/webmaster. The official St. Paul University Web Site will likewise be launched soon (a local version of it already running in our Intranet). I am hearing that Mozcom plans to establish a franchise ISP in Santiago City in Isabela. A certain telecommunications firm here in Tuguegarao is also planning to become an ISP with Infocom as its provider. In Nueva Vizcaya, I was informed that the Provincial Government has already an Internet Center put up by the DOST. Hindi na kasi ako nakakauwi sa Vizcaya, matagal na. It's so good of you to give computers to the Ineangan folks. Anyway, computerized na naman sa atin. When I was still there (1994-1995), may mga computers na sa Municipal Hall, mga 486 DX4s with 8 MB RAMs and color monitors and loaded with Windows 3.1, siguro ngayon upgraded na ang mga iyon ng higher specs at multimedia peripherals at baka connected na rin sa Internet.
