( They say that malls are the go-to hangout spots for folks in Metro Manila. While biking enthusiasts and weekend hikers may disagree, it’s easy to see why people residing in a metropolis severely lacking in public parks and open spaces choose to flock to indoor areas where they can be treated to free air conditioning, dining options, and shopping centers as well as fun leisure spots like cinemas and arcades. And with the growth of remote working, malls have also become a popular destination for out-of-office desk work—a trend that has led to many malls equipping their branches with worker-friendly amenities like free seating areas, electrical sockets, charging stations, and of course, Internet access.


In light of the growing need for free, accessible Wi-Fi, Robinsons Malls are now providing up to two hours of free Wi-Fi every day to shoppers who visit their branches. And yup, all 53 of their malls nationwide are part of the initiative.

Robinsons Malls Nationwide Now Offer Two Hours of Free Wi-Fi Every Day

While malls offering Wi-Fi access free of charge is nothing new, most branches in the country tend to only provide up to an hour (if not less) before additional charges incur. With two hours' worth of wireless Internet, you'll be able to work from the mall for an extended period of time—and if you're visiting the mall in the middle of a WFH day, you can easily access e-mails, group chats, or virtual meetings as you finish up quick tasks or purchase household necessities. You can even stream a movie to kill a couple of hours, keep your family posted on your whereabouts while you're out of the house, or contact people you want to meet at the mall with no fuss. Plus, if you’re getting a vaccine or booster shot whilst inside the mall, you'll be able stay entertained while waiting in line.
