In line with the recent goals of both PLDT / Smart and Globe, newly elected President Duterte sent a powerful message earlier in his first SONA that he wants better internet connectivity for the Philippines.
|Duterte wants FREE WiFi in PH!|
First, the President stated in his speech he wanted WiFi access with no charge in selected public places. What he meant there is more coverage, steadier connection, and more places with good FREE WiFi.
In that sense, people who badly needs internet won't need to use their paid data plans anymore on public areas. This should be helpful one.

Exciting times right?
