IT&E has donated 9 mobile hotspot devices with 4G LTE data to Mañe'lu, a local nonprofit, to help the organization carry out its mission.

Mañe'lu empowers and educates children and families facing adversity.  As part of their mission, the organization is working to disseminate information and updates related to the COVID-19 pandemic to the community they serve. Part of that effort includes translating important information into languages better understood by migrant communities.

More specifically, Mañe'lu's multilingual team from their Micronesian Resource Center One-Stop Shop program ensures clients and residents from the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) receive Government of Guam updates and notices.

“The unprecedented effects of the pandemic are being felt by families of all backgrounds. Mañe'lu is providing a vital service to our community during this time of need and we’re proud to support their work. The health and safety of our community is our top priority.” - Jim Oehlerking, CEO of IT&E

"Our team has been working hard to put out the most updated COVID-19 information in various languages to ensure that everyone understands the seriousness of the pandemic and its impact on them. IT&E's sponsorship of 9 mobile internet devices is going to be essential in safely accomplishing the work remotely while continuing our core mission.” - Samantha Taitano, Executive Director of Mañe'lu

IT&E remains committed to helping flatten the curve of the spread of COVID-19. Strict sanitization and social distancing measures are in place at its open locations in Harmon and AAFES.  IT&E launched the Stay Home Challenge to further encourage residents to stay home and to share photos and videos of how they are social distancing for a chance to win the latest Samsung device. Details can be found on IT&E’s social media pages.

In addition, IT&E has implemented several relief measures for its subscribers. IT&E has removed data caps for postpaid subscribers until April 30, 2020. In addition, IT&E has pushed back the due date for bills, so that subscribers can pay anytime during the month without late fees.
