Globe Sets Up Wi-Fi Network at Ninoy Aquino International Airport

Globe Telecom has partnered with the MIAA (Manila International Airport Authority) to provide free Wi-Fi access to all of NAIA's terminals. The partnership will be done through Globe's Tattoo broadband brand.

The free service will surely benefit many people while waiting for their flights. The Ninoy Aquino International Airport is one of the world's busiest airport, with more than 27 million passengers passing through the airport in 2010, with 18 million more for domestic routes.

“As we continue to make improvements on the NAIA terminals, we are happy to have
the support of partners like Globe Telecom to help us transform our airport into one of the best
in the world. It is through private-public partnerships, such as that of the MIAA and Globe were
we can make greater strides in improving public service,”
said MIAA General Manager Jose
Angel Honrado.

The government has earmarked P1.16-Billion to upgrade the NAIA, which includes an array of structural works and more basic amenities in the 30-year old airport.

Globe is doing a massive upgrade to it's network to provide more modern and more reliable network quality, rare dropped calls, and faster mobile data connectivity, with the help of wide 3G coverage. The network modernization program is pegged at $700 million.

I am sure a lot of people will indeed benefit from this great move by Globe and MIAA. That will make time-passing a little less boring. Let's see how the network goes there when we visit NAIA for out Palawan trip on March.
