Internet service provider RedLink Communicationshas announced that it will install free Wi-Fi zones throughout Yangon by the end of the year.
RedLink’s marketing manager Myo Myint Nyunt told Mizzima on 16 October that, although the company was still discussing the number of zones that it would establish, the project would be completed by the end of December.
These free Wi-Fi areas will be installed at SEA Games venues and inpopular public gathering places such as pagodas, marketplaces, universities, hospitals, bus terminals, railway stations and airports.
“Our objective in installing these Wi-Fi zones is to provide widespread access to the Internet so that everyone is able to spread news and information in due course,” Myo Myint Nyunt said.
He added that RedLink would also implement Wi-Fi zones that require payment to access. However, setting up the free access areas was the company’s main priority.
This project is receiving many positive reviews from the public.
“If these Wi-Fi zones are easily accessible to everyone, this venture will be good,” commented one citizen. “Free Wi-Fi will be more effective if the locations where it is available are regular visiting places, as this will be more convenient for people.”
RedLink Communications is the official Internet service provider for the SEA Games. The company has been in business for over five years and has over 10,000 subscribers across Myanmar.
