Globe marks another year of growing partnerships with fellow industry leaders and local government units through GoWiFi, the public WiFi hotspot service of the telco at the 2019 Partners Night in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
This year, GoWiFi has strengthened its position as the most expansive free public WiFi in the country. Now with a servicing footprint of up to 2,500 locations nationwide, GoWiFi services can now be used at approximately 25,000 access points. This rapid growth is fueled by the continuous establishment of partnerships with key businesses, and cooperation with local governments.
“This has been undoubtedly one of the greatest years for GoWiFi. We are up by over 500 locations from last year with an increasingly more diverse portfolio of access points from schools, hospitals, malls and even local government offices,” shared Albert de Larrazabal, Chief Commercial Officer at Globe. “We would have not reached such level of pervasion in one year without the unwavering support of everyone here.”
GoWiFi recently cemented partnerships with Araneta Center in Quezon City, Philippine Normal University in Manila, and Cebu Doctors’ University Hospital among many others to provide high-quality connectivity to the young and mobile-savvy generation. Further, the WiFi service provider formalized ties with local government units of economic powerhouses, San Juan, Makati, and the capital of Manila in line with its thrust of accelerating the country’s digital transformation.
“We look forward to the succeeding months as we transform more locations to GoWiFi sites. Free public WiFi will soon be available to more of our kababayans in the northern frontier of Luzon, and key areas in Visayas and Mindanao by 2020 as we continue expanding our network and gaining the valued cooperation of our government leaders,” added de Larrazabal.
To further add value to the on-the-go surfing experience of customers, subscribers of any GoSAKTO, GoSURF & EasySURF promos worth P50 and above can now get additional free 1GB GoWiFi access in any GoWiFi hotspot.
