Cooperating with different Internet service providers, the Macau Post and Telecommunications Bureau (CTT) launched its free Wi-Fi hotspot — FreeWiFLMO – at the Communications Museum in Estrada D. Maria II Wednesday.
The three Internet service providers cooperating with the scheme are CTM, Y5zone MACAU, a subsidiary of Hong Kong-based I’Wi-Fi hotspot providerY5zone, and jWIFI GUIDE.
The bureau and its three partners have set up the free Wi-Fi hotspots at different locations in the city in order to provide citizens and visitors with an easy way to enjoy a free wireless service in the city, according to a CTT statement.
The city’s WiFi GO is a free Wi-Fi service provided by Macau government. It is available on government premises and at public facilities and major tourist attractions.
The CTT website states that Free- WiFi.MO includes more free public Wi-Fi hotspots [than WiFi GO], and the area covered not only includes existing WiFi GO service locations, but also venues of other institutions.” The two free Wi-Fi hotspots now cover around 280 places in the city, according to the statement.
Users are not required to register in order to use FreeWiFi.MO. They can simply search and connect at available hotspots and then enjoy 60 minutes of free wireless service per session. Just like WiFi GO, FreeWiFi.MO is also unlimited concerning the number of times a user can connect. More information is available on www.freewifi.mo.
