Lamitan Mayor Roderick H. Furigay has welcomed the Sun Magic Zone Mindanao and its putting up of cellsites in his municipality.

Furigay said his municipality needs more communication facilities to cater to the needs of the people for its daily activities, livelihood and businesses.

He said that his municipality is the trading commercial center of  people from  the seven municipalities of the province, like, Tuburan, Mohamad Ajul, Tipo-Tipo, Sumisip, Al-Barka and  Ungkayan Pukan.

The municipality of Lamitan is located on the eastern part of Basilan province which is rich in agriculture and aqua-culture and is blessed with white beaches and a falls called “Bolingan” that can be developed for tourism activities. Lamitan is accessable to Zamboanga City through ferryboats that make daily trips.
Furigay said it is a good investment for Sun Celluar to put up cellsites in all municipalities of the province so that more ordinary people will use and subscribe the network for them to be able to communicate their realtives, friends and business associates  from other parts of the country and the world.

The cellsites, he said,  is also a big help to the people and the government in fighting lawlessness in the province.

Sun Magic Zone Mindanao was launched last January 20,2011 at Microtel Hotel in Davao City.
The launching was led by Sun Cellular executives Atty. William S. Pamintuan and Joan Corpus-Dueñas, and was attended by Charles Lim, Vevica Singson, and Toots Jimenez of Selrahco and invited newsmen from Zamboanga City, Davao City, Gen. Santos City and Bacolod City. — Allen Abastillas
