NOW Group teamed up with Cagayan Economic Zone Authority to deploy broadband and other information and communication technology services in Cagayan province, a top executive said Thursday.

“Our partnership with CEZA is a demonstration of our commitment to support the current administration’s Digital Philippines. As we advance in this era of digital transformation, we prioritize reducing the digital divide region by region,” said NOW Group chairman Mel Velarde in a statement.

“Our strategic intent is to leverage the power of technology and telecom, presenting a growth potential that can captivate international investors and locators,” he said.

Under the memorandum of agreement, NOW Corp. and NOW Telecom would deploy fixed wired, fixed wireless, terrestrial, satellite and other delivery systems to CEZA ensuring reliable and quality broadband and other ICT services to locators.

The initiative, embodied in the MOA signed by the parties, is designed to support the Marcos administration’s ambitious vision of “The Digital Philippines.”

CEZA administrator Katrina Ponce Enrile welcomed the initiative and interest of NOW Corp. and NOW Telecom “in pursuing this transformative project which underpins our commitment to national development. By attracting investments and fostering innovation, we are charting a course toward a digital future.”
