Smart puts fast Wi-Fi facilities in virus hubs

Smart Communications Inc. said it installed fast, free and 24/7 Smart Wi-Fi to several major newly-activated COVID-19 facilities as part of efforts to equip medical front liners with reliable data connectivity.

Smart has rolled out carrier-grade fiber-powered Smart WiFi to the Ninoy Aquino Stadium at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex, the Philippine International Convention Center tent and the World Trade Center.

These large venues have been converted into COVID-19 treatment facilities that will handle patients under monitoring (PUMs) and patients under investigation (PUIs).

Smart also installed Wifi connectivity at the La Salle Greenhills campus in Mandaluyong, which now houses health workers from nearby hospitals.

These WiFi installations, which have a capacity of 1 gigabyte per second, are the latest in PLDT-Smart’s ongoing efforts to provide communications support to frontline agencies and their personnel, such as the departments of health, transportation, public works, the armed forces and police, local governments and non-governmental organizations in different parts of the country.
