REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Quezon City, Metro Manila
FIFTEENTH CONGRESS
First Regular SessionHouse Bill No. 4271
Introduced by Kabataan Party-List Representative Raymond V. PalatinoEXPLANATORY NOTE
The internet has proven to be one of the greatest and most valuable venues wherepeople can exercise their democratic freedoms, from their personal rights as individuals tofreely express their sentiments, to the people's collective rights to air out political opinionsand grievances.The Free Public Wi-Fi Act seeks to move government one step forward inproviding democratic access to the world wide web. Notwithstanding the issue of themass accessibility and availability of personal electronic devices that people have to use inorder to access public networks, government has to recognize that the internet is oneimportant mechanism in encouraging the people's participation in governance and indemocracy and one way to foster this democratic participation is by at least providing thepeople access to the internet in many, if not all, of our government buildings and publicestablishments. It will also encourage people to visit and look upon our governmentinstitutions as truly public spaces where they can assemble and converge for discussions,talk with government officials, and participate in democratic processes.
