MANILA - The Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) said Tuesday free wireless internet would be offered in major transport terminals nationwide after it partnered with Smart Communications Inc.

The telecommunications giant will provide free Wi-Fi in airports, sea ports, train stations and bus terminals, under to a memorandum of understanding it signed with the government, the DOTC said in a statement.

The free internet will be "10 times faster" than regular connections, "at par with international standards," according to the statement.

"We thank our partner, Smart, for supporting the government's thrust to make passengers' travel experience more comfortable, convenient and connected," Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said.
