Smart’s FREE WiFi along EDSA to benefit MRT daily commuters and passengers of vehicles along EDSA
Open to subscribers of ALL networks, Smart Wifi lets users connect so they can surf, stream and download content for an initial FREE 30 minutes every day without data cap. To use this service, check for Smart Wifi signs and turn on your Wifi connection. Then, select #SmartWifi @MRT EDSA from the list of available Wifi networks so you can connect and start browsing. The first stage of this service will be available starting June 12, 2017 at each of the 13 MRT platforms from North Avenue to Taft, and along the continuous street level stretch of EDSA from Guadalupe to Cubao. This project is in partnership with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).
Smart Wifi can support up to 3,000 connected users with robust Wifi connectivity. The deployment of Smart Wifi complements Smart’s continued LTE rollout, which aims to improve indoor coverage, as well as increase capacity of Smart’s cell sites to handle more calls, texts, and ever-increasing mobile data traffic.
Smart Wifi has already been deployed at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), at the Light Railway Transit, in key regional airports, seaports and transport hubs all over the country; and in high-traffic areas such as tourist spots, hospitals, schools, city halls and malls, among others.

The Smart Wifi service is free for the first 30 minutes, without data cap. Load cards can be purchased to extend user sessions for P20 for 2 hours, valid for 2 days; and P50 for 10 hours, valid for 5 days. Smart subscribers can top up for as low as P10, for 30 minutes, valid for 1 day.
