Free Public Wifi accross the PHL
« on: March 19, 2015, 05:55:54 am »
Di ko alam kung dito sa "internet and networking" or sa "breaking news" dapat ito ipost.

anyway, you've read it right. hopefully starting this mid 2015 magkakaroon na ng free public wifi access sa Pilipinas

Quote
Places where broadband Wi-Fi hotspots will be installed include plazas, schools, hospital, piers, government offices, and airport terminals. The average speed will be 256 kbps.

if its stable then yes, its fast enough. stability beats out high speed all the time. kahit pa 10mbps ang speed mo kung hindi stable yan wala rin, useless

ano kaya ibig nila sabihin sa tv white space ang gagamitin? does it mean needed pa ng dongle/adaptor para yun ordinary laptop makasagap ng free wifi?

heard and watched the report regarding this matter... however, there will be a cap on your usage for a day... so if your device is recognized by their system as over the cap, you cannot access the free wifi anymore... so advantage ang madaming gadgets....  laffman::

ilan users kaya ang makakaconnect at a given time/same time? sa pagkakasabi sa interview "may capping dahil kung may 2 or 3 umabuso sa connection kawawa naman yung iba..."

2-3 users lang at a time? 10? 20? etc... marami lang magrereklamong pangit ang free wifi service kapag ganyan.

At this point , I think that they should state VERY clearly that this is for "educational purposes" and meant for use by those not able to afford renting a connection. Of course later on, bibilis din yan.

Daming komento kasi na sinasabi ang bagal daw, not good enough for their purposes, etc. eh most heavy use websites will offer either a mobile version or stripped down one upon learning of your connection speed (i.e. gmail) and at the usual recommended page site (AFAIK) of 30Kb per page, kayang kaya ihandle ng 256kb speed yun kahit hatihatiin pa. Tanga na lang gagamit nito for video streaming or what they call "gaming" tapos magrereklamo.

para may nabasa ako na article na around 100,000 lang ang sabay sabay na user ay kaya nya imaintain at a given time sa buong circuit or system nya.

at the same time need pa rin ng government humahanap ng private partner/telco for this project.

 ang parang setup niya is  telco then TVWS transmiter then TVWS receiver -router wifi in remote areas  then user ...

medyo tsismis lang ito at ala ako concrete n article na makita about this.

buong circuit or system? meaning sa buong Philippine archipelago?

merong 42,028 baranggay sa buong Pilipinas. so mga 2-3 user nga lang bawat baranggay? or kung mamalasin pa na kung maraming gumagamit sa isang baranggay, merong barangay na hindi makakakonek?

kahit na may capping, malabong makakonek ang karamihan sa baranggay. kahit na ba sabihin pang for educational purposes.

anyway speculation pa lang naman ang 100,000 users sa buong system, huwag naman sana.

the real problem here is the monitoring... if the intention is for all to be able to access the internet thru free wifi, then they should make some strategy on how this will be effected, like determining on who can access... they can get data from the barangays on who can benefit the access more....

may pre registration po siya before ka makagamit.
pupunta ka sa registration area nila para sila mag lagay  ng kategory ng account mo. pag pulis, fire department etc. level 3 ka full speed ang iyong internet and priority ka kasi inaasume na for work related ang iyong paggamit. level 2 naman kapag other government employee then 1 naman kapag ordinary citizen.

ito pala yun link sa nabasa ko na 100,000 user ang capacity  nya
