The Podium Enables Free WiFi

The Podium in Ortigas (Pasig City) launched their free Wifi service last Sunday, May 31, 2009. This is actually the 3rd-in-a-row as two other Wifi services were launched by the SM Group in the past few months which included SM Marikina and The Block at SM North Edsa.

The launch this time though, is a little different such that an entertainment was provided in the first part as Podium's usual Sunday program in their mall.

It featured rising singer Vince Camua. The young crooner serenaded the crowd at the earlier part and he was a good performer.
Moreover, the two previous events had laptop as the raffle prize giveaway. This time around, they tried having smaller but more prizes in forms of tenant gift certificates and a Nokia cellfone grand prize. I guess this is better such that more than one person is going home happy with a prize; although this writer haven't won a single anything ever since. Not that I'm complaining, raffle depends on chances and perhaps they were just not for me. :) (haha!)
Some of the winners included fellow bloggers Ohmski and Fjords who won the Nokia Cellfone grand prize.
Anyhow, congratulations to the SM Group for providing free Wifi services to their mall customers in phases just like in other developed countries. With today's connected communal habits of the young generation, internet connection is almost a must.
