Free internet zones to be created

Plans are afoot to provide free wi-fi in city centres and tourist areas, according to the House commerce committee
“We are on track to create free internet zones in Cyprus, in places where many people congregate, markets, beaches and businesses and other places so that Cyprus can become a model and a leader in freedom and free use of the internet,” said committee chairman, DISY’s Lefteris Christoforou.
The long term plan is for 140 areas to benefit.
Opposition AKEL MP Costas Costas agreed, saying the plan should go forward as soon as possible.
It was frustrating, he said, to see that Cyprus was ranked 25th out of 28 member states in the provision of electronic services by the government. Promoting e-government was an imperative, he added.
DIKO’s Angelos Votsis said the commerce ministry had prepared a study on the issue.
He said it would take around three weeks to finish consultations with the municipalities and hoped that within a month there would be something to announce.
