Hai Phong (VNA) – The Federation of Labour in the northern city of Hai Phong on March 6 launched a free wifi network for workers living in rented houses.

The local chapter of the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) installed the free internet service in 10 locations with a high density of rental houses for workers in An Duong, Duong Kinh, An Lao, and Thuy Nguyen districts.

More than 400 labourers will benefit from the programme.

Hai Phong now houses 170 workers’ rental house areas, offering 1,700 rooms and accommodating 3,414 workers.
