As the Ministry of Education (MOE) launched its Teachers’ Welfare and Support Programme at the Arthur Chung Convention Centre on Wednesday, GTT has announced free GTT Fibre installation for all teachers in Guyana applying for the service.
GTT Fibre is the latest in cutting-edge broadband technology, providing more bandwidth over a greater distance and faster internet service, the company said in a news release. The new plans of Fibre50, Fibre100, and Fibre150 provides more than double the speed of the previous Blaze plans at the same or reduced cost.
Chief Executive Officer of GTT, Damian Blackburn who participated in the event virtually applauded the ministry for launching the initiative and expressed heartfelt thanks to all teachers in Guyana for their continued efforts in molding the minds of the future generation, even in the coronavirus pandemic.
The ministry’s support programme is aimed at providing a range of additional services to teachers across an array of relevant areas.
While many teachers have returned to teaching physically in the classrooms, the GTT CEO reminded of company’s support to teachers through its teachers plan that provides them with 25 percent extra data and minutes when purchasing any bundle.
“We at GTT believe in the quality of education and the quality of learning teachers in Guyana provide. While many teachers and students transition to learning virtually, we will continue to play our role in supporting them,” Blackburn said.
The GTT Sales team also attended the event with special deals on handsets, distributed Free GTT SIMs and handed over four Samsung A11 smartphones to randomly selected teachers.
The event is among several activities by the ministry in observance of Education Month 2021. It was observed under the theme “Education for All: Innovative Teaching and Learning in a Global Pandemic”.
