(VNF) - Within this year, the Hanoi administration will provide free Wi-Fi services in many locations for tourism and intelligent transportation.
According to the Hanoi Department of Information and Communications, Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung mentioned this plan during a recent conference on intelligent transportation in the capital.
Earlier, during the celebration of the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long – Hanoi in 2010, the project of offering free Wi-Fi services in some places around Hoan Kiem lake did not get approval from relevant agencies.

Currently, the Hanoi Transport & Services Corporation (Transerco) has launched the installation of devices to provide free Wi-Fi on more than 200 buses, such as route No.86 from the Hanoi Railway Station to the Noi Bai International Airport, route No.11 from the Thong Nhat Park to the University of Agriculture and route No.12 from the Nghia Do Park to Dai Ang.
In the coming time, all buses in Hanoi will have free Internet services.
On February 10th last year, the My Dinh station in Nam Tu Liem district was the first location in the capital providing this service for passengers.
So far, big cities such as Hoi An, Hue, Da Nang, Hai Phong and Ha Long have offered free Wi-Fi services in public places for tourism. While Ho Chi Minh City also plans to develop the same services to corners of the locality in the near future./.
