Globe Telecom announced the expansion of its free WiFi service, GoWiFi to more sites around the country.

As of March 2019, GoWiFi is now accessible in 2,000 sites nationwide, up by 500 sites from the previous year. This translates to 20,000 access points from 15,000 in 2018 and to about 18 million sessions per month. GoWiFi is available at a growing number venues such as malls, coffee shops, restaurants, convenience stores and transportation hubs. Among the expansion areas that will be covered by GoWiFi within the year range from health and educational institutions to some of the biggest retail establishments, said Globe.

Currently, GoWiFi users can choose between GoWiFi (free service) and GoWiFi Auto (paid service). These two services are available to all users with any WiFi-enabled device (smartphones, tablets, and laptops) and select international numbers regardless of the network service provider and even international numbers. By subscribing to GoWiFi, users get to enjoy connection speeds as high as 100 Mbps depending on location.

To connect to GoWiFi, just open the device’s WiFi settings, connect to the SSID “@FreeGoWiFi” or _FreeGoWiFi, register and wait for the SMS verification code, then simply choose from the WiFi offers and start surfing.

You can also extend your browsing time beyond the free allocation provided by GoWiFi by subscribing to GoWiFi Auto.
