QUẢNG BÌNH — The central province of Quảng Bình has plans to introduce free Wi-Fi coverage at 12 locations around the province, including the coastal and island localities.
Particularly, four Wi-Fi generating stations will be built at Ngang Pass in the province’s Quảng Trạch District, Sen Thủy Commune in Lệ Thủy District, Hải Ninh Commune in Quảng Ninh District, and Đá Nhảy Beach in Bố Trạch District.
The stations are expected to meet the communications needs of border guards and military forces located in these areas, who put up in the waters or near the ocean’s edge. The installation will be done by the military locomotive business, Viettel.
Other targeted areas for free Wi-Fi coverage include Bảo Ninh Square, Mother Suốt Statue, Tam Tòa Church relic and the parking lot at General Giáp memorial site, as well as Phong Nha Cave’s boat station, Hoằng Phúc Pagoda, Liễu Hạnh Princess Temple, Cảnh Dương mural village and Quảng Bình gate relic.
According to the local Department of Information and Communications, the Wi-Fi has a speed of 60Mbps and covers a 150m-wide radius. The coverage is strong enough to be used by 350 users at the same time.
The department will supervise the installation, which is scheduled for the last months of the year by Viettel.
It said the free Wi-Fi coverage would foster the development of tourism and trade in the province, thanks to quick access to information of sites, agencies and trade perspectives in the province.
The Wi-Fi stations designated for services to coastal and island areas would be the most focused ones in order to ensure the smooth flow of information during bad weather conditions and natural disasters, which is said to have defence significance. — VNS
