Mike Nolasco, Smart’s Business Head for South Luzon, signed the MOU for the telco, while General Trias City Mayor Antonio ‘Ony’ Ferrer, Cavite 6th District Representative Luis ‘Jon Jon’ Ferrer IV and Vice Mayor Morit Sison signed in behalf of the local government.

Areas in the city where the free WiFi service will be available include the wet market, city plaza, city hall and the sports center, among others.

Salamat po sa Smart sa pagbibigay ng libreng WiFi sa ating lungsod. (Thanks to Smart for providing free WiFi to our city), ” Mayor Antonio Ferrer said.
