LOOK: Free Wifi on EDSA reaches over 100mbps!

Free Wifi on EDSA reaches over 100mbps

There are a lot of things that I don't like about this administration but at least Duterte is keeping true with his promise of greatly improving internet access for all Filipinos. The free wifi project isa collaboration between the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), along with Globe Telecom Inc. and Smart Communications Inc. 


It's now available in all stations of MRT-3 and nearby locations with plans to cover a great majority of EDSA. The wifi can be easily accessed using the Juan Connect Network and will give each user a data allocation of over 100mb each day. The network is run by Globe and Smart each contributing over 1 gigabit per second capacity (that's a lot). DICT Secretary Rodolfo Salalima said that it can accommodate more than 3,000 users at a time and promised that it won't drop below 10mbps.

Gadget Addict, a foreign Youtuber who live in the Philippines, went out on EDSA to try out the free WiFi. To his surprise, the download speeds up as high as 100mbps with the upload hovering around 60mbps. He did a bounty of tests to see just how fast the Wifi is. He tried playing videos on youtube at full HD 1080p and even tried live streaming. Check our his video. 

Free Wifi on EDSA reaches over 100mbps

Just a quick bit of info: the average internet speed in the Philippines is 5.5mbps. Before you go squatting in MRT-3 with your laptop, torrenting the shit out of this internet let me first remind you that users will only be able to get 30 minutes free each day. Additional consumption will come at a charge. 

"It's not just about providing internet, but making sure that internet is fast and reliable as well. The goal was to ensure access to the internet was readily available along EDSA, thereby allowing our commuting public to experience a more comfortable ride by staying connected to the service."
  -National Telecommunications Commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba 

The NTC commissioner claimed that after the full rollout of this project. The EDSA free wifi will benefit over 1 million travelers each day that passes through the country's busiest highway.
