Free Wi-Fi Hotspots for UP Campuses Now Available!

Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) recently formalized its commitment to provide free connectivity and access points to all the constituent universities of the University of the Philippines System across the country.


Smart chief wireless advisor Orlando B. Vea [Left] and UP president Alfredo E. Pascual [Right] signed a Memorandum of Aggreement covering the provision of free wireless connectivity to the UP System. Under the signed Memorandum of Aggreement, Smart will install 120 hotspots initially in various UP campuses. Also, eight additional stations will be added to the current six base stations inside UP.

“We have to start somewhere, right now — as they say in UP — kung hindi tayo, sino; kung di ngayon, kailan?  This MOA signing is a good way to help make the eUP project a reality. We’re in this together,”
-said Vea, who is a UP alumnus.

The free internet access will be limited only to the whitelisted websites by Smart and UP. Other websites can still be accessed for free for 30 minutes per day, and succeeding usage will be charged accordingly.
