San Pedro Mayor Art Mercado meets with telco execs for faster internet
San Pedro Mayor Art Mercado has met with executives of SMART and PLDT to discuss ways to improve internet speed in the city.
The discussion was held not long after Mercado met with his ninong Manny V. Pangilinan to talk about programs for San Pedro.
Mercado said he consulted the SMART and PLDT executives about what he could do to make internet connection in San Pedro faster and more accessible, especially to students.
He identified the areas in San Pedro with limited internet access that should be made priority.
The executives discussed with him the process of fiberization, which is one step toward making San Pedro a Smart City.
They also donated 50 units of the Smart Bro LTE Pocket Wifi to help students taking online classes.
Mercado said he is doing all he could to implement his plans to improve internet connection in the city.
“Marami na tayong nakakausap na mga tao at grupo na gustong tumulong upang maisakatuparan ang ating mga plano. Konting pasensya lang po. Mauuna na tayo,” he said.
