Standard

 

Starting Thursday, July 12, the Makati City Hall will be a free Wi-Fi zone as part of the city government’s plan to make Makati the country’s first wi-fi city.

The launch of the free wi-fi zone coincides with the birthday of Mayor Jejomar Erwin Binay Jr., who plans to install free wi-fi in all the city’s 33 villages.

โ€œWe are laying the foundation for transforming Makati into the countryโ€™s first wireless city. We recognize that embracing modern technology is the fastest way to achieve inclusive progress and equitable growth in this age of globalization,โ€ Binay said.

He said the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) will be the cityโ€™s project partner and Internet service provider.

Also on Thursday, the city government will launch a Twitter account focusing on Makati Traffic.

The Twitter account @MakatiTraffic seeks to provide motorists and commuters real-time 24-hour traffic updates.

Meanwhile, the city will also relaunch the city web portal and hold a mega job fair and discount caravan at the City Hall Quadrangle.

It will also offer a P1-discount on jeepney fares from 8 a.m. to noon, offered by members of the Unified Transport Federation of Makati as their birthday gift to the mayor.
