TL;DR: Smart WiFi is now available in Las Pinas City.
Smart Communications is partnering with the City of Las Piñas to provide them with free and secure Smart WiFi.
Under the partnership, Smart is deploying fiber-powered WiFi connectivity to Las Piñas barangays, the city’s elementary and high schools, and the City Hall.
Smart is also working closely with the Department of Education (Dep-Ed) Las Piñas for its distance learning program and has turned over PLDT Home WiFi units for the purpose. The free WiFi would provide connectivity to more than 5,000 school children.
The new partnership is part of Smart’s “Live Smarter for a Better World” campaign, which shines a spotlight on Smart’s long-running community partnership programs and Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. Through the campaign, Smart also seeks to inspire individuals to create a lasting positive impact on society through “personal revolutions”, powered by connectivity.
The team-up will also power the Business One Stop Shop (BOSS), provide connectivity to constituents transacting at city hall, as well as help boost the city’s education efforts.
“We are happy to work hand-in-hand with the City of Las Piñas as it responds to the call of these fast-changing times by upgrading the quality of public service and making its services faster and more efficient, down to the barangay level,” Basas said.
Smart’s Barangay Connect project, which aims to provide free Wi-Fi to barangays and bring connectivity closer to communities, will soon roll out to key areas around the country starting at Antipolo, Mandaluyong, Las Piñas, General Santos, and Nueva Ecija.
