Baguio and La Trinidad residents may soon get a FREE Public Wifi

Baguio City - In an effort to provide internet connectivity to all Filipinos nationwide, the government and Smart Telecoms are now beefing up their project of providing residents of Baguio City a Free public Wifi.

The government's online news portal, Philippine Information Agency reports that the public wifi project is already in the pipeline at the Baguio City Hall and some famous tourist destinations like Burnham Park, Session Road and Mines View Park.

The project which is to be done in partnership with PLDT will also include putting up wifi spots in some known universities in Baguio and La Trinidad such as the University of Baguio and Benguet State University in La Trinidad, Benguet.

The project known as "SmartSpots targets to provide fast internet access to both locals and tourists in all usual hangout places in the city.

In fact the project was already been set up at the "The Camp", one of the known hangouts along Leonard Wood Road.

Having a reliable wifi connection is a plus factor for the city tourism industry as this will help tourists in accessing the internet to look for accommodation and places to hangout, according to Sandy Carlos of the Camp HR Operations Director for Corporate Innovators.

This would also benefit students in the city to be able to use the free public wifi for their school projects, research and assignments.

The Free Internet Access Act which was signed by President Rodrigo Duterte is part of the government's plan to promote knowledge and information to all citizens to enable them to participate in the fast evolving information and communication era.
