Free public Wi-Fi project to get P1.8B funding

      wifi zone       This was according to Senate Minority Leader Ralph Recto, who explained that under the 2017 proposed budget of the newly-created Department of Science and Technology (DICT), funding for the “Free Internet Wi-Fi Connectivity in Public Places” project will go up by P107 million, from P1.65 billion this year.

      The increase in the wi-fi program’s budget would benefit public school students, farmers and traders by making them connected to the rest of the country and by bringing them information that is relevant to their lives.

     This project is really helpful in this millennial generation. Because it provides the greatest public benefit. Like in schools, its benefits are obvious – to help students and teachers with their research, providing Internet access in airports, seaports, and terminals, will be a big help to tourists and travelers. Also this will help people in the provinces when it comes to education, and it will also serve as a cheaper alternative in telecommunication.
