The business reported that Pangan-an Island in the Cebu, Visayas region has received internet service via satellites as part of its aims to increase access to the world. Apart from unstable smartphone cellular service, this remote location of the Philippines is surrounded by water and other islands. It lacks stable internet access.

Starlink, a satellite internet service provided by SpaceX, has expanded its reach to include public schools in outlying locations in an effort to close the digital divide and empower marginalized people. Pangan-an, a remote island in the Philippines' Visayas region, is one of these underserved areas.

According to the reports, this was given as a gift by the Australia-based APNIC Foundation and the Central Visayas Information Sharing Network Foundation Inc. (CVISNET). Pangan-an, a remote island in Cebu, has struggled for a long time with a lack of consistent internet service. The island's population, particularly its young learners, has seen limited educational chances and advancements as a result of this lack of connectivity. Starlink has committed to filling this gap and providing a lifeline to information and knowledge for the island's public schools after realizing the transformative potential of internet connection.
