Here in Metro Manila commuting isn’t just traveling; it’s a way of life. It’s a part of the daily grind. A commuter gets in a cramped train a normal person, and he or she gets out a survivor.
My personal favorite method of commuting is via train thanks to all the stations and stops that almost always take me to places I need to go. Thanks to my trusty data plan and fully charged phone, getting to destination never feels like a long wait. However this does use a large amount of battery life. But now thanks to #SmartWifi EDSA my commute is a lot more interesting!
In partnership with the government, all 13 MRT stations are now have free Wifi care of Smart! It’s 30 minutes of free Wifi with NO DATA CAP! After the 30 minutes all you need is top up by paying 20 pesos and you’ll get an additional 2 hours! Any extra time is valid for 2 days so you’ll even have Wifi time the day after.
I’ve been using it myself and it’s been a great experience. It’s quick to sign up and really fast too, almost hitting 204 Mbps. With this Wifi speed I was tweeting, sending messages, streaming some music, and watching funny videos no problem. After a while I didn’t even notice I’d already arrived at my destination!
So next time you’re commuting to work, school, or just heading somewhere, give it a shot! You won’t have to worry about boring old commutes or running out of battery too soon ever again.
