Smart provides free WiFi for new COVID-19 healthcare facilities

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 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).
