Globe Telecom announced that it is providing free WiFi connectivity at the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (PPSRNP), a world heritage site and one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.
The UNESCO heritage site becomes the first-ever national park with Managed WiFi in the Philippines, allowing tourists to enjoy WiFi connectivity in Sabang Wharf and in the registration area at the cave entrance, said Globe. This initiative supports Globe Telecom's drive to transform the Philippines into a digital nation by instilling the importance of eGovernance to offices ranging from local government units up to the national government.
The project was completed through its enterprise Information and Communications Technology (ICT) arm Globe Business, and the Local Government of Puerto Princesa, Palawan. New 7 Wonders of Nature (2007–2011) was an initiative started in 2007 to create a list of seven natural wonders chosen by people through a global poll.
