UPV acquires additional Internet connection
Due to increasing and pressing demand, the UP Visayas has acquired additional Internet connection for Miagao campus. Since February 22, 2013, SITELCO has been providing an additional 12 Mbps bandwidth to enhance the existing PREGINET connection. The recent improvement in Internet access is expected to be further enhanced once the system-funded upgrade of existing PREGINET connection from 4 Mbps to 10 Mbps takes effect. By then, Miagao campus will have a 22 Mbps aggregate Internet bandwidth.
Meanwhile, Internet connection at the Iloilo City campus has been upgraded from 6 Mbps to 10 Mbps and will soon have an additional 2 Mbps connection from PREGINET.
