HCM CITY (VNS) — A wifi system has been installed on the new Nguyen Hue Pedestrian Street in HCM City. The service has a speed of 1GB per second, which allows many people to access the internet 24 hours a day.
The wifi service began in mid-May. Authorities have been checking the system recently to ensure that it operates properly.
District 1 authorities said they were also planning to install 160 benches made from the wood of trees that once stood on the street and were later cut down to make room for construction of a subway line.
The walking street was built with an investment of VND430 billion (US$20 million). It is 670m in width and 64m in length. Since the opening last month, it has attracted thousands of visitors every day. — VNS
