SM City Cebu Launches Free Mallwide Wifi

July 31, 2009 – SM City Cebu has given more reasons for shopaholics to regularly visit the mall. Apart from SM Cebu’s wide parking spaces and vast array of tenants, SM City Cebu is now giving wireless fidelity (wifi) access to all – FREE.

The free wifi access is another innovation in SM City Cebu’s quest to be the premier mall destination of Cebuano Shoppers. This innovation would allow shoppers with Wi-Fi capable devices to conveniently access the web wherever they are within the mall’s premises, even the carpark.

The unveiling of this new service was covered by numerous media outlets, from radio stations to print media, including the Cebu Bloggers Society (whose 2 active members Sinjin and Jose won the 1st and 2nd prizes for the Photoblog contest). The launch featured the initial free Wi-Fi access at the SM City Cebu Northwing Atrium. As of August 4, the service is already available mallwide.

The free Wi-Fi launch in SM Cebu was simultaneously launched with SM Iloilo and SM Bacolod. To date, this brings 13 SM Malls offering free Wi-Fi access since it was first initiated at SM Marikina in February. By October this year, the SM management aims to have all its 36 SM Malls in the Philippines offer free Wi-Fi access.

The free Wi-Fi access is provided by ISP PhilCom Inc. (Philippine Global Communications Inc.). The speed has capacity to serve up to 200 users all at the same time, at an amazing 8 mbps. Though the mall averages 100,000 to 200,000 daily foot traffic, not all have access to Wi-Fi enabled devices and not all accesses the web simultaneously thus connection would still be stable.

So, head now to SM City Cebu and experience the fast internet access on the go – while shopping, of course!
