More than 40 wireless internet transmitters are being installed in Ha Long City in the northern province of Quang Ninh in April to provide a free wifi service.

The work, carried out by the Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Corporation, at a cost of more than 200 billion VND, is expected to go into operation on April 20, just days before the 2012 Ha Long Tourism Week.

Tourists and local people will be able to access free wifi throughout the city, but will be charged for using entertainment services or if they exceed the download limit.

The Director of Quang Ninh’s Department of Information and Communications, Nguyen Minh Hong, said the construction of an information technology infrastructure is essential if the city is to become a popular destination for tourist and investors.

The supply of free wifi hotspots in Ha Long is just part of a project to install wireless internet coverage in Quang Ninh, and is intended to cover every township and city in the province, including Uong Bi, Cam Pha, Van Don, Mong Cai, by 2015.
Ha Long will be the second city to supply free wifi, after Hoi An, which launched a similar service last month.-VNA
