More than a year after it was first announced, the free Wi-Fi system that’s targeting 90 percent of the residential areas in the province of Cavite has started providing its services on a trial run.
From November 15 to 22, residents of Bacoor, Imus, and Dasmariñas can connect to the public Wi-Fi named LINKod Kabitenyo and gain Internet access at no cost. Test users are categorized and given use limits in order to avoid congestion and abuse.
Registered students, for instance, are granted a daily maximum of four (4) hours, whereas teachers, front liners, and employees are allotted eight (8) hours daily. The rest of the public can use the free Wi-FI for one (1) hour every day.
The provincial government of Cavite will be gathering data during the trial run to evaluate the quality of the service and work out the kinks before the official launch, which involves rolling out to the remaining areas in the province.
