Free Wi-Fi opens at 46 more public locations

Date: 2012-12-18

THE city has opened free public Wi-Fi service at 46 more public venues, including the Huaihai Road shopping street, Lujiazui greenery area and the Qibao ancient town in the suburbs.

That puts the number of venues covered by Wi-Fi at 230, the city government announced yesterday. Newly added coverage areas also include major hospitals and business areas such as the Chengqiao shopping circle in Chongming Island.

Users can get access to the free Wi-Fi system dubbed "i-Shanghai" for two hours each day. The number of locations is set to expand to 450 in 2013 as part of an effort to build a "wireless city."

Residents can apply via their telecom operator. Wi-Fi networks allow people to access the Internet through devices like smartphones, tablet computers and laptops.

A list of the "i-Shanghai" locations is available on the city's official Weibo microblog.
