More than 4,500 households in Batangas now have access to reliable and affordable internet. This resulted from the partnership between Globe and Summerhills Homes Development Corporation (SHDC) on the deployment of KonekTayo WiFi.
KonekTayo WiFi is a fast and secure community WiFi service that provides households with an affordable internet connection without the need for a modem, postpaid subscription, or mobile data. It reflects on Globe’s mission to bolster the accessibility of high-quality, affordable connectivity in the country.
Beneficiaries of the service are the residents of Primerarosa, Reginarosa, and Primera, three housing projects of SHDC in Sta Teresita, Sto Tomas, Batangas. SHDC is a socialized housing arm of SM Property group. It aims to provide a community that takes pride in offering families more than a usual home atmosphere at an affordable price.
“Working with SHDC is another milestone for Globe and KonekTayo WiFi to make reliable and affordable connectivity accessible to more Filipino households. With the enduring need for accessible connectivity, our efforts to connect more Filipino families also continue. We’re grateful to have the collaborative support of SHDC to make this happen in various locations in Batangas,” said Janis Racpan, Director of Business Development and Marketing, Globe Digital Solutions Group.
Racpan added that Globe would continue to speed up local deployments of KonekTayo WiFi in other parts of the Philippines to reach and support more Filipinos. The internet has become a key enabler for learning, livelihood, and entertainment, making it an essential service for those staying at home due to the pandemic.
Globe strongly supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 9, highlighting the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development. It is committed to upholding the UN Global Compact principles and contributing to 10 UN SDGs.
