GlobeQuest rolls out Wi-Fi in Manila malls

Innove’s corporate arm GlobeQuest has partnered with Ayala Center to deploy Wi-Fi in Ayala Malls. GlobeQuest, through its Wireless Internet Zone (Wiz), placed W-Fi hotspots in Glorietta, Greenbelt, and Alabang Town Center, and other popular hang-outs in Metro Manila.

The hotspots allows users in these establishments to browse the Web, access e-mail, play network games or make Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) calls using their Wi-Fi enabled laptops, personal digital assistants or phones.

GlobeQuest head Jesus C. Romero said in a press release that shopping malls “represent the next frontier for the increasingly mobile work force and for people who simply want Internet access on the go.”

Ayala Center Cebu has had Wi-Fi connection since last year but the coverage is limited to just a part of the mall. Romero said the Wi-Fi rollout in Manila is the first time that an entire mall will have wireless internet access.

  1. I have yet to ask Smart about their Smart WiFi service… I don’t have internet access at home yet and we’re only using a PLDT prepaid line.

    I hope that their service is available where I live ^_^;

    There’s supposed to be Globe services in our area. But I can’t seem to find any just yet.
