Mayor Abby Binay revealed that its administration has signed an agreement with Globe, allowing them to deploy free GoWiFi access to 27 barangay health centers, Makati City Hall, Ospital ng Makati, and the University of Makati.

During the signing, the two parties announced that #Makatizens will be enjoying a free 1GB GoWiFi for every registration of GoSAKTO, GoSURF, and EasySURF in any GoWiFi hotspots in the city.

Mayor Binay, on the other hand, noted that Makati's A-class projects should be a wake-up call for other LGUs on finally transforming into a smart city.
