PLDT, Smart to bolster wireless data connectivity in major transport hubs


PLDT and Smart Communications have signed a landmark agreement with the Philippine government through the Department of Transportation to strengthen data connectivity with the installation of Smart Wifi in major airports, seaports, and bus terminals all over the country, as well as mass transport systems, MRT and LRT.


Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade and PLDT and Smart Chairman, President, and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan signed yesterday the Memorandum of Understanding outlining the initiative for better customer experience and to bring Internet access to more Filipinos nationwide.


Under the MOU, Smart Wifi will be strengthened in major airports across the country, and deployed at seaports and bus terminals to serve millions of users.


Wireless data connectivity will also be available to commuters inside the station platforms, and light railway vehicle (LRV) as well as on the street level of the entire lines of MRT3, and LRT 1 and 2.


The rollout is backed by PLDT’s robust and resilient fixed and wireless networks.
