Globe takes its mission of accelerating the country’s digital transformation to one of the heartlands of Luzon – Pampanga.  


The telco giant recently cemented a formal partnership with the local government of Magalang, a first-class municipality in the province. The partnership launch was led by Hon. Romulo Pecson, Mayor of Magalang with Winsley Bangit, VP at Globe at Home Prepaid and Janis Racpan, Director, Business Development and Marketing – Digital Solutions Group at Globe.  

With a formal partnership in place, Globe will be powering key locations in the city with its GoWiFi and KapitWiFi services. GoWiFi, the most pervasive public WiFi service in the country, is now available in public and high-traffic areas in the municipality such as the Magalang Municipal Hall and Magalang Plaza. 


KapitWiFi, Globe’s most affordable community WiFi service which allows customers to simply connect to a hotspot, purchase a promo, and enjoy surfing in a snap, will be available in San Isidro Resettlement and Sta. Lucia Resettlement areas in April for the benefit of a total of 5,800 households in said communities. The new product promises affordability with no monthly fees and device cash outs, and availability to all mobile users regardless of network provider. For as low as P50, customers can enjoy up to 3GB of data allocation for three days.

GoWiFi continues its expansion plans nationwide, particularly in high-traffic areas like malls, hospitals, and schools to make high-quality internet connection accessible and affordable to more Filipinos. The service is now available in over 2,700 locations nationwide with speeds of up to 100Mbps depending on coverage area. Meanwhile, KapitWiFi is available in other provinces such as Cebu, Iloilo and Tacloban with plans of more rollouts nationwide later this year.
