Are you getting bored in your daily commute or swamped by several emails when you haven’t even reached the office? This might be a little helpful to you.
A deal has been recently secure to provide a free WI-FI access in MRT-3 stations by Globe Telecom with the Department of Transportation and Communications.
Globe Telecommunications sited last Thursday that a memorandum of understanding was signed with the DOTC to deploy wireless internet infrastructure in all MRT stations in EDSA.
According to Globe Senior Vice President for Program Governance, Joel Augustin, the project aims to help address issues on mobile signals along EDSA, especially during rush hours. He added that “With the support of government agencies such as the operators of MRT Line 3, we hope to change the experience of our customers in high foot traffic areas and strategic locations such as public transport systems”.
This initiative is expected to benefit around 350,000 passengers for 30 minutes daily.
“By providing a reliable mobile and Wi-Fi internet connectivity, our customers will be able to catch up on emails, keep updated on online entertainment and other communication requirements to further enhance their digital lifestyle even while on their way to work or after work,” Agustin said.
With the traffic situation around the metro these days, being continuously connected to the world through the internet can somehow alleviate stress and boredom.
