Calbayog is one of the 14 cities chosen as sites for the infrastructure that will serve as the distribution center for internet connectivity for 967 towns in the archipelago covered by the project.
In eastern visayas only the cities of Calbayog and Tacloban were picked out to serve as internet connectivity centers in region 8.

The Php 74.8 Million contract for the Free W-Fi project was reportedly awarded by the ICT Office to two subsidiaries of Globe Telecom- the Innove Communications and the Yundo Solutions.

Meanwhile Telecommunications Engineer Joseph Albert Lledo of the Provincial Science and Technology Office in Catbalogan City told the Calbayog Journal that the Free public wifi test-run in manila last month was very successful.
