  1. Well, I've heard about this on the news but it says otherwise. People were kinda disappointed with the speed that the WiFi is giving. I think it has got something to do with the towers in general. I just wish that all internet providers would really come through with all the hardships.

  2. Honestly, I appreciate this effort that there are free wifi in some public places. But then prudence is needed as well in using our mobile devices because we cannot dismiss the fact that there are some bad peeps roaming around as well.

  3. Wow, this is great. I remember when I visited HK last year, I was so amazed with their infinite WIFI in every train station and I'm so happy that EDSA MRT has this one as well. I'm sure that commuter will be very for this one as we Filipinos love to always connect online and this would definitely a comfort for everyone, especially if you're waiting on the terminal. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

  4. Fantastic speeds. But this would result in greater data consumption, no? I wish we had similar speeds in India too, so that using internet is a pleasurable experience.

  5. Wow! This is great! When I was still working outside the home, I used to ride the MRT a lot. I'm sure many passengers of the MRT would love this new development. At least, they can surf the net while waiting or in line.
