EDSA Free WiFi
Malacañang has disclosed that free WiFi will be available along EDSA starting June 12, 2017, Independence Day.
In a media release, the Presidential Communications Operations Office said the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), together with the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), will launch “high-speed Internet services” for the whole stretch of EDSA next week in line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s promise.
To make the EDSA project happen, the DICT employed strategies, which include providing access points in all MRT stations and in between stations and enhancing infrastructures for cellular services along EDSA, PCOO said.
It’s been initially told that commuters will be able to login to EDSA WiFi with internet access for free for the first 30 minutes, it’s just like what SM stores have been implementing on its malls. SM is giving mall goers 60 minutes free internet per day.
We’ll be waiting for the official implementing guidelines in the coming days and will update this post once we secured additional details.
