DICT installs free wifi to public libraries

The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has installed over 6,723 wifi sites all over the country under its Free Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) for All program. This includes 138 public libraries. 

These free wifi sites were installed in over 80 provinces and 1,021 cities and municipalities.

The priority of this program is providing free wifi to the education sector. At present, they have established wifi sites for public schools, SUCs, and TESDA branches. 

They have also provided free wifi to the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Education, Training, and Doctrine Command (AFPETDC) in Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City, which provides military education to uniformed personnel. 

The DICT targets to build 100,000 free wifi access sites by 2023. 

The Department of Information and Communications Technology, launched in 2016, is the executive department of the Philippine government responsible for the planning, development, and promotion of the country's information and communications technology agenda in support of national development.

This service is also available in the Iloilo City Public Library. [Read more: ICPL continues to serve in the new normal]
