The Saigon Railway Station on September 9 put into operation a wi-fi system to provide free internet connection to customers.

Nguyen Van Thanh, head of the station, said the system allows 800 simultaneous access points with a four Mbps broadband connection.

The installation is the first phase of a project on free wi-fi hotspots at railway stations.

As part of the first phase, with a total cost of more than 1 billion VND (47,600 USD), the project's investor, the New Generation Joint Stock Company, will install the wi-fi systems at Nha Trang, Dieu Tri and Da Nang railway stations next month.-VNA
