Wifi Whle The Smart Wi-Fi rollout is part of Smart?s network expansion program. It goes hand-in-hand with the ongoing Smart LTE rollout, which aims to improve LTE coverage and increase the capacity of Smart?s cell sites nationwide. With a backhaul capacity of up to one gigabit per second, Smart Wi-Fi can support up to 3,000 connected users with robust Wi-Fi connectivity. Passengers waiting for their flights can now access Smart Wi-Fi in the four terminals of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, as well as in 17 other key airports around the country. Smart Wi-Fi is also available in seaports in Puerto Princesa, Batangas, Calapan in Mindoro, Cebu, Dumaguete, Dapitan, Zamboanga, Tagbilaran, Bacolod, and in the gateways to premier island destination Boracay, the Caticlan Jetty Port and Cagban Port. On June 12, coinciding with the nation?s 119th Independence Day celebrations, Smart launched Smart Wi-Fi on the MRT and along the stretch of EDSA to improve the mobile data experience of around half a million commuters who travel along the country?s busiest highway to get from their homes to their workplaces, and vice versa. Commuters waiting for the MRT or riding on EDSA route buses can now stream music, watch videos or check email via Smart Wi-Fi connectivity, which posted download speeds of between 200 to 300 Mbps from Taft Avenue station to North Avenue station during its first week. Since the start of the year, several entertainment and lifestyle hubs called SmartSpots ? high-traffic areas such as restaurant and bar clusters and malls where crowds often hang out ? have also been launched, and are now also powered by Smart Wi-Fi and Smart LTE.]]>
