Some cities around the world have become known to have made free WIFI connection available across multiple locations. These include Tel Aviv in Israel, Barcelona, Helsinki, Florence, Luxembourg in Europe and Taipei and Seoul in Asia. Citizens and visitors are all able to access the internet, hassle-free in popular tourist areas, beaches, parks, and transportation hubs.
In the Philippines, there are 54,000,000 internet users daily and majority of data consumption occurs in fixed locations. 86% of mobile data consumption in the Philippines are connected through WIFI.
