PLDT, Smart to offer better wireless services in transport hubs
Apart from the promise of the faster internet connectivity in airports, the government through the Department of Transportation (DOTr) has partnered with PLDT and Smart for the improvement of both Wi-Fi and mobile data services when in transport.
PLDT and Smart have signed an agreement with the DOTr to strengthen wireless connectivity with the use of Smart Wi-Fi in major airports, seaports, bus terminals, and in the LRT and MRT. Under the agreement, the private sector will provide free internet access in various transport hubs. As for the mass transport systems in the metro, users can enjoy these services even when inside the train and in the area of the station.
Only time will tell when this is going to be publicly available and we do hope that these free service is of good quality.
