Smart Expands WiFi Deployment in High-Traffic Areas Across the Philippines

PLDT wireless subsidiary Smart Communications, Inc. recently expanded its Smart WiFi deployment in more high-traffic areas in the Philippines, including schools, hospitals, government offices, and entertainment hubs.

PLDT also claimed that the extensive rollout of Smart WiFi nationwide proves that the company leads the country’s digital transformation into a Smart Nation.

“By installing Smart WiFi in these important establishments, we are empowering more Filipinos by making quality connectivity more accessible for them to do their school work or access important government services,” Jovy Hernandez, Senior Vice President and Head of Enterprise for PLDT and Smart, said.

Smart WiFi is installed in schools and universities, including Ateneo de Naga in Bicol, De La Salle University, Holy Cross College in Davao, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, University of Cebu Banilad, West Visayas State University, and University of the Philippines-Diliman College of Engineering and College of Law, among others.

Also, it is now available in government offices around Metro Manila, Batangas, Benguet, Bulacan, Cavite, Ilocos Norte, Laguna, Palawan, Cebu, Iloilo, Negros Occidental, Leyte, Cagayan de Oro, Davao and Misamis Oriental.

Smart has launched Smart Spots, too, where high-speed WiFi is provided in restaurants and other establishments in different parts of the country.

“The nationwide rollout of Smart WiFi complements the ongoing network expansion and modernization program across the country. The network upgrade has resulted in significant improvements in voice, SMS, and mobile Internet coverage and quality, particularly on its LTE (Long Term Evolution) service. All these form part of an overarching effort to make the Internet accessible to all,” Eric R. Alberto, Chief Revenue Officer of PLDT and Smart, noted.

Apart from this, Smart WiFi is available in high-traffic areas during local festivities, as well. In fact, in October, it will power up the Hermosa Festival in Zamboanga City so people can share their photos and videos during the celebration. It will be available in Plaza Pershing, RT Lim Boulevard, and Paseo del Mar.
