Popular public buildings to get free wifi

Free wifi with your coffee

FREE wifi connection will be offered in popular public buildings and locations in about three to four months, Communications and Transport Minister Marios Demetriades announced on Friday.

Other than in hospitals and citizen service centres, the free connectivity will also be available in museums, at archaeological sites and at the road transport department.

“We proceeded to sign a contract [with a private organisation] to provide free wifi in public buildings in places where a lot of people go and need to wait,” the minister said. “This is part of our overall effort to promote digital skills, to promote connectivity and increase services offered by the state.”

The contract provides for the installation of 135 wireless access points in 61 buildings with most traffic that have been identified by a study and have priority over those rarely visited.

The equipment for the project costs €75,000 and there will be annual fees for the internet connection.

The implementation of the project starts immediately and it will be operational in three to four months, he added.
