Educational support

In accordance with the "GIGA School Concept," we support the use of learning terminals for families with eligible children, and in some areas provide a dedicated network to boards of education and other organizations to help improve the educational environment. In addition, in the smartphone classroom, we will convey the importance of using SNS and security, and will work to improve information literacy.

We will continue to work on educational activities to improve the information literacy of all people who use the Internet, from children to seniors.
