Free WiFi connection now available in select key areas in the city
Globe GoWiFi recently sealed a partnership with the Local Government of Naga and the University of Nueva Caseres to provide the city’s residents and students with free, high-quality data connectivity.
Officials of Naga City government led by Mayor Nelson S. Legacion, together with Globe executives, signed a landmark agreement to put up GoWiFi services for employees and constituents at Naga City Hall. The services are also available at the University of Nueva Caseres, one of the city’s top institutions for higher education. By having GoWiFi available inside the university, students and teachers alike are assured of free, high-quality data connectivity that they can access any time of the day, whether for studying, research, or even for leisure purposes and interaction with co-students and faculty peers.

This is in line with our enduring commitment to serve more Filipinos with reliable, high-quality, and affordable internet connectivity,” said Janis Nathalie Racpan, Director of Marketing and Business Development of GoWiFi.

The partnership looks to extend GoWiFi services to more areas within the city such as Plaza Rizal, Plaza Quezon, Plaza Quince Martires, Our Lady of Lourdes Infirmary, Jesse M. Robredo Coliseum, and Naga City Hospital by next year.
