Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

A trial of free public Wi-Fi service at 26 locations across the territory will begin today, the Telecommunications Regulation Bureau announced yesterday. The new spots will include the Border Gate, the Macau International Airport, the Outer Harbour and Taipa ferry terminals, as well as activity centres and sports fields.
The territory will now have a total of 60 spots where Wi-Fi is available. The service was launched last September and, by the end of 2010, over 160,000 people had used it to access the Internet.
Wi-Fi service can be accessed from 8 am to 1 am, through either non-encrypted or encrypted connections. The public name of the wireless network (SSID) is “wifigo” or “wifigo-s” respectively. The login name and password for both connections are the same – “wifigo”.
Wi-Fi access for each user will be disconnected automatically after 45 minutes.
