In less than $32 Million, the Government of Philipines will roll out free WiFi in the country! The country has a population of 100 Million.
Frustrated by expensive and low quality internet by telcom providers – the Government of Philippines has taken a project to provide Free WiFi access for all citizens of Philippines by 2016!
Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. and Globe Telecom will carry on this project to empower it’s citizens.
Philipines has a history of expensive and bad Internet access. Telcos failed to provide quality and affordable services to people and this is the reason the Government is investing in a countrywide Public WiFi infrastructure.
With free WiFi in the whole country, the telecom companies in the country will be forced to bring affordable mobile data access into the country.
