PLDT, the leading telecommunications company, is aggressively building WiFi or wireless Internet connection zones to turn the biggest city in the country into an expanding Wifi hub today, Friday. PLDT is providing its myDSL and landline service subscribers unlimited WiFi Internet connection available in selected establishments across town.

The launch is right in time for the 75th Araw ng Dabaw founding anniversary.

Through PLDT WiFi Zone, PLDT landline and myDSL subscribers will have access to unlimited Wifi Internet connection as an add-on service in all PLDT WiFi zones, which include restaurants, malls, gas stations, bars, salons, PC shops, hospitals, and PLDT business offices, among others, situated across key cities in the country.

Just recently, several areas during Cebu's Sinulog and Baguio's Panagbenga Festivals were successfully equipped with PLDT WiFi zones that allowed guests and spectators to connect to the net wirelessly for the duration of the parade.

It was also extended to allow more people to experience the outdoor high speed connections.

Bloggers, photographers, media and tourists who want to post photos, videos, and share experiences online during the parade on Friday can avail themselves of the Internet access using the WiFi pins that will be distributed from PLDT booths along the parade routes (Roxas corner CM Recto, Corner Bonifacio and Rizal Park, People's Park and Rizal Park).

All they have to do is approach the representatives manning the booths. Free WiFi pins will be distributed until Sunday, March 18.

Apart from parade routes, high traffic areas and establishments already have PLDT WiFi zones, including Pelayo, San Pedro, Damosa IT Park, City Triangle, Aldevinco, Davao City Hall, and Autoshop.
