Smart gives free access to relevant government websites amid COVID-19
With the spread of COVID-19 in the Philippines, PLDT continuously provide efforts to help the public access the right information amid concerns over COVID-19. With that said, PLDT wireless unit Smart Communications is now offering free access to more relevant government websites which started last March 11.
Free Website Access
Subscribers of Smart, Sun, and TNT can access the official websites of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (http://www.ndrrmc.gov.ph/) and Philippine Information Agency (https://pia.gov.ph/) for free on their mobile phones. The two websites provide official information and updates on the number and locations of persons under investigation (PUI), as well as advisories on what to do and how to stay protected. Earlier, Smart had provided free access to the websites of the Department of Health (www.doh.gov.ph), particularly its COVID-19 Tracker (https://ncovtracker.doh.gov.ph), and the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (www.phivolcs.dost.gov.ph).
Smart, Sun, and TNT users can also still make calls without being charged to the 911 Emergency Hotline and 8888 Citizens’ Complaint Center.
“The key to dealing with this situation is having the right information at all times. By providing free access to these sites, we empower the public by helping them get information that will enable them to protect themselves, their families, and communities,”said PLDT-Smart Public Affairs Head Ramon R. Isberto.
