Last Friday (July 29, 201) PLDT and Smart Communications fired up its Smart WiFi at the Laguindingan Airport in Misamis Oriental.


The firing up of Smart Wifi will improve the experience of travelers using wifi in airports serving Northern Mindanao.

The upgrade of the wireless connectivity in the airport will enable travelers to maximize their digital experience while surfing the Internet for their favorite sites, keeping connected at home and office while traveling. With a bandwidth of up to 1 gigabit per second, Smart Wifi promises a world-class digital experience.


Laguindingan Airport is one of the busiest regional airports in the country. It serves the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City, as well as the provinces of Misamis Oriental and Lanao del Norte in Northern Mindanao. It can accommodate 2,000 passengers a day, and up to 1.6 million a year.



The initial rollout also includes all four passenger terminals of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport as well as airports in Iloilo, Bacolod, Dumaguete, Kalibo, General Santos, Clark, Laoag, Cebu, Caticlan, and Zamboanga. Also on the list are key seaports in Southern Luzon as well as MRT3, and LRT line 1 and 2 for Metro Manila.

Smart Wifi’s footprint will also be expanded to cover more public areas, such as city halls, schools, hospitals, and establishments such as malls, restaurants, and coffee shops, among many others, amid the increasing demand for more public Wifi hotspots in the country. The rollout is backed by PLDT’s robust and resilient fixed and wireless networks.
