UP campuses to have free WiFi hotspots by Smart
‘Iskolars ng Bayan’ will have additional free access to the web within all constituent campuses courtesy of Smart Communications.
The University of the Philippines System and Smart Communications recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement that will provide a number of free hotspots across the country’s national university. Under the MOA inked by both parties, Smart will install 120 hotspots initially in various UP campuses. Also, eight additional stations will be added to the current six base stations inside UP.
The free internet access will be limited only to the whitelisted websites by Smart and UP. Other websites can still be accessed for free for 30 minutes per day, and succeeding usage will be charged accordingly.
