City Vice Mayor Jose Antonio S. Veloso, presiding officer of the 14th Sangguniang Panlungsod, approved the resolution authorizing the City Mayor John Geesnell L. Yap to enter into a Memorandum of agreement with Smart Communications, Inc., for the installation of Smart Telecommunication facilities with an indoor Distributed Antenna System (DAS). The resolution sponsored by Hon. Nerio D. Zamora II, chairman of the Committee on Information and Communications Technology, shall allow Smart to use a space in the City Hall building free of rental charges for the installation of indoor DAS, which will provide optimum coverage for the employees and patrons of the City Government of Tagbilaran. Through the installation of DAS, the city expects to improve telecommunications and experience limited network access failures.
The city’s move to tap Smart for improved internet speed is in consonance with the nationwide thrust to improve the overall infrastructure development and communication services quality in the Philippines. Moreover, with the ongoing pandemic, the City is looking into the possibility of more online transactions to limit physical contact and contain the spread of the coronavirus. With an improved internet connection, the City hopes to cater to the needs of its constituents online more efficiently.
