The public can now use the free high-speed Wi-Fi at the Tagbilaran City port.
Delivering on its promise of setting up the Wi-Fi system early this month, the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) made the free service available on Saturday.
Engineer James Gantaloa, Tagbilaran City PPA manager, told DYRD Balita on Wednesday that it installed an internet connection with speeds reaching 200 megabytes per second.
The system was set up by the Philippine Long Distance Company, he said.
It can be used inside the passenger terminal building and even in other areas of the Tagbilaran City port.
Gantalao bared that the PPA will be paying PLDT almost P8,000 a month for the service.
The installation of the system is part of the PPAâ€™s efforts to improve its facilities after the 7.2-magnitude quake damaged the pier in 2013.
According to Gantalao, the construction of a covered walkway and the new PPA administration building is ongoing.
The PPA is also set to impose new rules and regulations within the compound as part of tightened security measures across public places in the city, he said. (Rey Tutas)
