As someone who tends to get curious every now and then, free access to such websites is such a luxury. This is a great milestone in Philippine history and kudos to Smart on taking up the challenge. Quality Android smartphones are getting cheaper so what a great timing!

Imagine all the awesome things you can do with besides Facebook. Students don't have to go to internet cafe as much as they do for they now have free access to great educational resources. We can now easily get up to date with the day's news and weather information cutting cost on newspaper subscription!

I hope more Filipinos will be empowered through internet and stop thinking of it for its entertainment purpose. Share the good news to everyone!
