Government plans to spend P1.76 billion next year for free Wi-Fi in public areas, which, if approved, would bring to P4.81 billion the amount allocated for the project since 2015, Senate Minority Leader Ralph Recto said today.

Under the 2017 proposed budget of the newly-created Department of Science and Technology (DICT), Recto said funding for what is officially known as the “Free Internet Wi-Fi Connectivity in Public Places” will go up by P107 million, from P1.65 billion this year.
