Free Wifi!

Philippines
July 30, 2016 2:32am CST
I heard some countries have free wifi. Here in our country, there is free, but only free Facebook access that is very limited. Technically, it is not a free wifi, but only free data. It cannot even download pictures. It is hosted by one of our Telco companies and not through our government. But know some of the senators are doing their best to submit a bill to give everyone in the country a free wifi access. How about you? Is your country, providing a free wifi to all? Photo:Pixabay

There are free wifi in some malls and hospitals in our place, but it's so slow. President Duterte promises to have free wifi access at public places in out country.

@acelawrites I hope, so we will experience happiness and less burden of paying the internet bill. It will be our government to pay.Better this time, there is clear journey of people's money unlike in the previous presidents.They were the one enjoying the money from people's taxes. This time many good things happen purely for all Pinoys rich or poor, no barrier.

We have some free Wifi zones with full access...but then, I feel it will have security issues to key in your details with public wi-fi network

I see. I did not think about the security. Right, it is possible that your log ins will get compromised. It is scary. I think it is better not to have free wifi access at all if it will only put us at risk.

Not all countries are having free wi fi, but inexpensive payment unlike ours here in Ph so scary performance of our internet providers.

@eliza_godinez12 That is so true, when I was in New Zealand , my cousin paid only $18 for their internet.That is equivalent to 700 pesos Ph money.

Here a lot of restaurants provide free wifi. Macdonalds and KFC both have free wifi and so do a lot of other places.

That's good. We just need to be careful because a device can be hacked once connected to a network.

In the USA Americans are making millions off of us by charging for the internet service. No free wifi here unless you go to the library.
