With the continued growth and increase in the number of mobile devices being used to access the internet, Filipinos have developed this “always on” mentality or that need to be always connected.
According to a study called Wave7, Filipinos have been using social media platforms 53 hours a week—11 hours more than the total global usage. Thus it comes as no surprise that from being the text messaging capital of the world, the Philippines has now become the social media capital of the world.
“Whether it’s to keep in touch with friends and family, share new experiences or meet new people, we are always looking for the best way to connect to the internet,” notes Jose Vega, Sales and Marketing Director, Huawei Device Philippines.
“One of the first things people ask about as soon as they arrive at their destination– whether its a hotel, a restaurant or even at a friend’s house is for the Wi-Fi password, but since not all venues could handle the number of people connecting to their routers, internet connection can be very slow– that is if you can even connect in the first place. That is why having your own Pocket WiFi device remains the best and most convenient solution especially if you are traveling with your family or friends and need to connect several devices at a time,” he added.
“When you get a Huawei WiFi, you don’t have to ask for passwords anymore because you instantly become the hotspot everyone would be searching for instead.”
