Free WIFI Hotspots - Manila, Makati, Cebu, Davao, Ortigas, Mandaluyong, Pasay, Marikina, Pampanga

Public Service:

Ella Fadreligan from Quezon City emailed us this question just a while ago:
"Dear TechPinas, where can I find free wifi hotspots or zones here in Metro Manila? Freebies in these financially trying times should definitely be taken advantage of, don't you think? Thanks!"

Haha. Thanks for the inquiry Ella! :)
