Sana all! Rico Golez prods PLDT-Smart to make wifi free in Paranaque


Paranaque City Vice Mayor Rico Golez is putting his connections to good use.

Golez tapped people he knew in PLDT and Smart Telecommunications for free wifi access in Paranaque after finding out that the companies have similar agreements with other cities in Metro Manila.

In a Facebook post, the vice mayor said his efforts bore fruit, as PLDT-Smart told him they are willing to partner with the city government for free wifi access.

“Sabi ay dapat sumulat ang ating mayor na si Edwin Olivarez. Agad naman tayong nag-introduce ng council resolution na binibigay ng kapangyarihan ang ating mayor na pumirma sa kahit anong dokumento tungkol dito,” he said.

The resolution gives Olivarez authority to sign a memorandum of agreement with PLDT-Smart for the provision of free wifi services within the Paranaque City Hall and other public places in the city.
