Last January 19, 2020, the streets of Cebu City were filled with both locals and visitors from around the world, all in a festive mood as they partook in celebrations for this year’s Sinulog Festival.
The festival is a series of events honoring the Sto. Niño (Child Jesus). The month-long celebration culminates in a Grand Street Parade on the third Sunday of January of every year.
Where the Sinulog-goers were, connectivity was also present through existing Free
Wi-Fi for All sites in Cebu City at Fort San Pedro, DICT Cebu Field Office, DICT Cebu PoP, Plaza Independencia, and Plaza Sugbu. Internet access through the Program allowed attendees to post real-time updates, including photos and videos, during the event.
Free Wi-Fi was also installed at the Abellana Sports Complex and One Central Hotel for organizer use. Through the provision of connectivity at these locations, the safe conduct of all Sinulog Festival activities was made even easier.
