As part of its efforts to equip COVID-19 medical front liners with reliable data connectivity, PLDT wireless subsidiary Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) is providing fast, free and 24/7 Smart WiFi to several major newly-activated COVID-19 facilities.


Smart is rolling 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 persons under monitoring (PUMs) and patients under investigation (PUIs).


Smart has 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 up to 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.
