UPDATE: INTERNET IN EDSA IS FREE - Here Are The IDs

UPDATE: The free wifi service has begun, and people travelling in EDSA are reporting varying speeds to no speed at all. This is because in some areas, the MRT stations are too far in between for the hotspots to cover the entire EDSA. This will be resolved soon as DICT promises to keep the speeds to double-digits or the telcos will have to deal with the wrath of the President.  If you want to connect to the free wifi service, just look fro "FREE EDSA wifi" and "Juan Konek" WiFi IDs. Later on, they will merge into one ID, "PipolKonek".  Globe and PLDT offered their services at no cost to the government. Both telcos have been providing free Wi-Fi connection in different transport hubs such as airports and bus terminals.  The second stage of the project will cover EDSA from Cubao to North Avenue, and from Guadalupe to Taft Avenue. The third and last stage will cover the entire stretch of EDSA, outside the reach of MRT, from MOA to Balintawak. This is expected to be completed by the end of August 2017.  ORIGINAL BLOG:Just in time for the National Independence Day Celebration, the Department of Information and Communications Technology has confirmed that the EDSA WIFI PROJECT will launch on the same day.  The DICT, together with the National Telecommunications Commmission (NTC), will formally launch the free Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet services, dubbed as “Alay Para sa Malayang Pilipino,” in the whole stretch of EDSA.  Free WiFi has long been in the discussion, even before President Duterte took office. In his very first SONA, the current president promised to provide free WiFi nationwide, and now he has delivered on that promise. The Chief Executive instructed the DICT “to provide Wi-Fi access in selected public places throughout the country.”“I have ordered the newly-created DICT to develop a National Broadband Plan to accelerate the deployment of fiber optic cables and wireless technologies to improve Internet speed,” President Duterte also said.  To make the EDSA project happen, the DICT employed strategies, which include providing access points in all MRT stations and in between stations and enhancing infrastructures for cellular services along EDSA. The WiFi network will be available to the entire 24-kilometer stretch of EDSA. Commuters will be able to login to the network for free for the 1st 30 minutes at a speed of up to 100Mbps.  Service testing of the project will be done today, June 10, so if you are travelling via EDSA, you may have an early taste of the Free WiFi while getting stuck on traffic. The Cubao to Guadalupe stretch is said to be a priority in the implementation. DICT’s partner agencies include the Department of Transportation – Metro Rail Transit 3 (MRT3), PLDT and SMART, Globe Telecom, ABRATIQUE & ASSOCIATES, Metro Rail Transit Corporation (MRT DevCo), Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA, Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA), Manila Electric Company (MERALCO), Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA), Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC), and the local governments of Quezon City, Makati City, Mandaluyong and Pasay City. (PCO-Content)  The project will be followed by the implementation of Free WiFi in town plazas, parks, government offices, health units, and transport terminals including train stations, seaports, and airports around the country. The government is allotting Php3 billion for the 10-year internet project that aims to set up 100,000 Wi-Fi sites to address the poor internet access and connectivity in the country.
