With the extension of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila and other high risk provinces to May 15, Globe is extending its free unlimited Internet via GoWiFi, in government designated quarantine areas, residence areas and more hospitals for the benefit of medical frontliners and patients.
Free unlimited GoWiFi will be available in the following locations until further notice:
DOH quarantine areas
Additional quarantine area
Residence areas for frontliners
“There is no greater time than today when Globe can share its mission of doing good for the public and express its solidarity in supporting the government’s call to ensure the health and safety of everyone. As endeavors to flatten the curve have escalated, connectivity in quarantine areas and more hospitals are more critical than ever. By offering free and unlimited connectivity, we hope to boost the unflagging service and commitment of our medical frontliners and government employees,” said Janis Racpan, Director for Digital Solutions Group at Globe.
GoWiFi services have been available since March 13 in select medical institutions and supermarkets nationwide as support to healthcare frontliners and communities affected by the pandemic. Free unli WiFi can also be accessed at NAIA Terminals 1, 2 and 3 for the duration of the extended ECQ.
Globe also recently deployed Cell Site on Wheels (COW) in two designated COVID-19 quarantine areas at Rizal Memorial Stadium (RMS) in Manila and at the Philippine International Commercial Complex (PICC) Forum in Pasay City. With this installation, medical staff and patients accommodated at the RMS and PICC Forum will have the capability to remain connected and be updated on the latest government efforts against the pandemic.
To stay updated on the latest COVID-19 developments, Globe mobile and broadband customers are given free access to the official websites of the Department of Health (DOH) and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).
