Pa­tients, vis­i­tors, doc­tors and per­son­nel of the Army Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal (AGH) in Fort Boni­fa­cio, Taguig City can now en­joy free in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity, an of­fi­cial said yes­ter­day.

The Depart­ment of In­for­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Tech­nol­ogy (DICT) in­stalled a WiFi hotspot in the mil­i­tary hos­pi­tal last week, ac­cord­ing to Army spokesman Lt. Col. Ra­mon Za­gala.

DICT Sec­re­tary Gre­go­rio Honasan said the free WiFi aims to up­lift the morale of sol­diers con­fined in the hos­pi­tal as well as their vis­i­tors.

Honasan, a re­tired Army of­fi­cer, at­tended the launch­ing of the free Wi-Fi pro­gram at the AGH on Oct. 8.

He said the pro­vi­sion of Wi-Fi in the mil­i­tary hos­pi­tal was un­der Repub­lic Act 10929 or the Free In­ter­net Ac­cess in Pub­lic Places Act.

Army chief Maj. Gen. Je­sus Sarsagat said the pro­ject was one way of thank­ing the sol­diers for their sac­ri­fices for the coun­try. –
