Telcos to set up free Wi-Fi zones in four public areas in Baguio
by PIO release

Residents and visitors are in for a treat with the installation of public Wi-Fi in four sites in the city by the Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) and Smart Telecommunications.

Louie Metra, PLDT relationship manager, said these areas are the Baguio City Hall, Burnham Park, Mines View Park, and Session Road.

Metra said the access to Wi-Fi will be available anytime as the installation will start this month.

He, however, said that access to the public wi-fi will be limited because of issues on cyber security to guarantee the protection of the public from potential cyber bullying and other cybercrimes like personal security of users.

Jose Rosete, head of Smart Telecommunications external affairs, said while the public Wi-Fi will be free, the provider shall shoulder the cost of infrastructure as it will be wired due to the volume of people accessing the service at any one time.

He added PLDT and Smart will be using the state-of-the-art telecommunication infrastructure of the telecommunications company to provide service to the public because of the growing need for wi-fi service in public places in the city.

“There will always be someone shouldering the expenses of the said service. It could either be the company or the concerned local government or national government agency that will provide the funds for the said purpose, thus it is not really free,” Rosete said.

The Smart official said the installation of the public Wi-Fi is part of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) project of the two telecommunications companies.

He said the installation of Wi-Fi service entails state-of-the-art infrastructure, like fiber optic cables.

The Department of Information and Communication Technology is also enhancing Internet connectivity by installing free Wi-Fi in public beginning in Metro Manila, which was inaugurated on June 12.
