But at the end of the day, keeping people in touch remains their core function.</p><p>Cellular operator Sun Cellular has taken that in-sight to heart. Ten years after its bold entrance into the mobile phone scene, the company continues to gain ground by addressing the dynamic demands of mod-ern telephony while staying grounded and keeping in mind the basic commu-nication needs of mobile phone users.</p><p>We have been aggres-sive in introducing new technologies, knowing that the local market is quick to embrace these changes, says Ricky Pea, Sun Cellulars Senior Vice President for Postpaid, Broadband and New Business Marketing.</p><p>For example, the market has responded enthusiasti-cally to our Sundroid of-ferings which feature attrac-tive smartphones and tablets running on the popular Android operating system.</p><p>Pea added however that the company still makes a conscious effort to anchor its plans on its signature </p><p>unlimited services.In almost every touch-</p><p>point, product inquiries are usually driven by questions about the availability and specifications of a particu-lar smartphone or gadget, Pea reveals. But we have always been grateful that the market eventually goes beyond these and continues to embrace unlimited with Sun. </p><p>New trends and gadgets may come and go, but when it finally comes down to adding depth and putting all these into relevance, Sun never loses sight of its primary role in help-</p><p>ing bridge distances and connect people through best-value communication services, shares Pea. </p><p>With a network infra-structure that was originally built to support unlimited services, Sun Cellular re-mains to be a clear car-rier of choice due to the reliability of its unlimited subscriptions and its no-frills charging system.</p><p>The unlimited call and text Sun Plan 350 remains to be the most power-packed at its price point. And this actually holds true for all our regular plans, even including the Sun Call &amp; </p><p>Surf 999 with the winning combo of unlimited call, text and data services, as well as the pioneer Sun Group Plan 999 which remains to be a favorite unlimited plan for families and business partners, Pea adds.</p><p>And for those with par-ticular gadget preferences, and those who already have their dream smartphones, we have an enhanced roster of SIM-only plans which can power-up and go well with any smartphone or gadget.</p><p>As a leading postpaid service provider, Sun Cel-lular was the first to hit the 1-million subscriber mark </p><p>in 2010 and has since been reaping incremental growth in its share of subscribers. By the end of 2012, its post-paid base has climbed up to reach 1.6 million. </p><p>We remain positive in sustaining growth and even regaining market leadership in the coming years. And as the telco landscape contin-ues to shift with the rising popularity of smartphones, expect Sun Cellular to be at the forefront in defining the best postpaid offers for the changing times, Pena concluded.</p><p>Sun Cellular is a member of the PLDT Group.</p><p>Going beyond flashy technology</p><p>By Apipa P. Bagumbaran CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY - A total of 3,471 young people, ages 18-30, under-went technical-vocational training under the joint program of the Technical Education and Skills Devel-opment Authority (Tesda) and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) dubbed Cash for Training Project (C4TP). </p><p>C4TP is a training pro-gram that responds to the governments thrust in pro-viding sustainable interven-</p><p>tion to improve the plight and condition of the youth and empower them through skills training and assistance towards gainful employ-ment and entrepreneurial activities. </p><p>It intends to assist 4,695 youths in the region who cannot afford to enroll in degree programs and who wish to find employment. </p><p>The beneficiaries for the C4TP are divided among the five provinces of the region as follows: Bukidnon - 1,050, Camiguin - 250 , Lanao del Norte - 925 , Misamis Oc-</p><p>cidental - 893 , and Misa-mis Oriental - 1,577.
