Students, particularly those at the high school and college levels, constantly feel the need to connect to the internet for various reasons: to gather research material, download the latest apps, stream and share content, or simply stay connected with friends, family, and peers. Members of the academe have come to accept this IT-enabled reality and acknowledge the role of digitalization and telecommunications in innovative learning.
Globe and Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology (NEUST) have partnered in their pledge to provide students and staff with easily accessible, high-quality data connectivity through GoWiFi services. The Memorandum of Agreement was led by NEUST University President Engr. Feliciana P. Jacoba, Ed. D. and GoWiFi Business Development Manager John Timothy Ang last November 11.
This initiative is intended to support the learning needs of students and to reinforce modern teaching strategies. Once the school grounds have been equipped with GoWiFi facilities, it should be easier for students and faculty to conduct research, disseminate information, share resource materials, and communicate with classmates and colleagues.
The NEUST is only one of the continuously increasing educational institutions that have been transformed into GoWiFi sites. Philippine Women’s University and Philippine Normal University in Manila, and Cebu Doctors University have likewise been identified as venues for Globe GoWiFi’s digitalization efforts nationwide.
GoWiFi is the country’s largest WiFi service where users can expect connection speeds as fast as 100 Mbps depending on the location regardless of network provider. Just connect to the SSID @FreeGoWiFi or @<site>_FreeGoWiFi, register, wait for SMS verification, select a WiFi offer, then confirm and start surfing.
As a bonus, Globe Prepaid and TM customers can enjoy 1 GB of free GoWiFi for every registration of GoSAKTO, GoSURF, and EasySURF worth P50 and above that they can use in any GoWiFi hotspot! Globe Prepaid GoSAKTO90 users can enjoy 1 GB free GoWiFi access on top of 2 GB mobile data, 2 GB for GoWATCH and PLAY, 1 GCash voucher and unlimited all-net texts valid for 7 days for only P90. On the other hand, TM EasySURF50 users automatically get 1 GB free GoWiFi access, 1 GB mobile data, 2 GB for EasyWATCH&PLAY, 300 MB for an app of their choice and unlimited all-net text all valid for 3 days.
