Formerly known as the KapitWiFi, Globe claims that the KonekTayo WiFi is a fast and secure community WiFi service designed to provide households with affordable internet as low as PHP 15 per day.

KonekTayo could be used by students and people who work from home with no device cashouts, monthly fees, and modems.

All they need to do is connect to a KonekTayoWiFi hotspot.

The KonekTayo WiFi school buses with special antennas will broadcast WiFi signals from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM 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., and Basco St. in Manila.

It will be FREE for the first hour of use for public school students and teachers in Manila. Globe recently provided 289,000 Globe SIM cards.

Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, Ayala Corporation Chairman and CEO and Globe Telecom Chairman said, Against the backdrop of COVID-19, internet access has become a lifeline more than a luxury. Internet access is needed by students to pursue online education, by workers to continue earning a living while working from home, by families to stay connected with each other. With Globe’s School Bus WiFi in the City of Manila, we are able to help in ensuring that residents have access to affordable WiFi connectivity.  We look to partner with other local governments to expand this initiative.

Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO said, We recognize the difficulties faced by the private school transport industry, especially now that classes have started. We sought to develop an innovation that will not only provide this industry with a new opportunity, but will also bring connectivity to students and communities in areas that need it most.

Globe is planning to engage more cities in the near future.
