HÀ NỘI — Director of Hà Nội’s Department of Information and Communications said the city will soon offer free Wi-Fi in some areas such as the old quarter, tourist locations, and bus stations.

The city expects the free Wi-Fi internet access to make it easier for Hanoians and tourists to navigate around the inner city. In July, the city’s bus operator Transeco installed free Wi-Fi hot spots in 200 buses for bus routes No.86, No.11 and No.12.

Hà Nội and HCM City are not the only cities to provide free Wi-Fi coverage. Tourism hubs including Hội An, Huế and Đà Nẵng in the central region and Hải Phòng and Hạ Long in the north have been wireless since 2012.

Nearly 49 million people, more than half of Viet Nam’s population of 90 million, are online as of June 30, 2016, according to statistics compiled by Internet World Stats. — VNS
