  COVID-19 pandemic has underlined the crucial need for connectivity like never before. For underprivileged communities, access to internet connectivity — or the lack thereof — determines whether demands of the new environment, such as distance learning and remote working, will be met by families belonging to these communities.

  In line with its continuous efforts to make internet accessible to Filipinos especially during this time, Globe Telecom officially launched the School Bus WiFi program in Manila City. The kick-off also marks a new, bigger vision of Globe and KonekTayo WiFi to provide fast, reliable and low-cost home internet connectivity in underserved markets in the locality.

  Using KonekTayo WiFi, Globe deployed school buses equipped with special antennas that will broadcast WiFi signal from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. from Monday to Sunday in covered areas including:
  • Pasaje del Carmen St.
  • Remigio St.
  • 853 Gonzalo Gil Puyat St.
  • 924 Bilibid Viejo St.
  • Tomas Mapua St.
  • Alfonso Mendoza St.
  • Dalupan St.
  • Oroqueta St.
  • Basco St. in Manila
  The use of KonekTayo WiFi service will be free for the first hour for public school students and teachers in Manila who were provided 289,000 Globe SIM cards.

  Through the School Bus WiFi campaign, Globe also extends support to school bus operators whose main source of livelihood was put at stake by the pandemic.

  Formerly known as KapitWiFi, KonekTayo WiFi is a fast and secure community WiFi service that aims to provide households with affordable internet. The School Bus WiFi campaign is part of KonekTayo WiFi’s bigger purpose of making internet connectivity more accessible for underserved families and communities across the country. With KonekTayo WiFi, customers simply need to connect to a KonekTayoWiFi hotspot, purchase a promo and surf all day.

  Available to all mobile networks, KonekTayo WiFi requires no device cashouts monthly fees and modems.

  With the School Bus WiFi Project, students or people who work from home can avail of the KonekTayo WiFi service for as low as P15 a day.
