Greeks are a step closer to start using free WiFi in public places like squares, libraries, playgrounds, museums and pedestrian walkways.
Greece’s Ministry of Digital Policy, Telecommunications and Information launched a public consultation on a draft contract to conclude a framework agreement entitled ‘WiFi4GR – developing public broadband wireless broadband access points.
‘ The estimated budget of the project is EUR 14.7 million. The duration of the consultation is set at fifteen days.
The project concerns the procurement, installation, connection configuration and operation of wireless internet access points in various regions of the country. With its implementation, free broadband internet access via WiFi hotspots will be available in 2,900 outdoor and / or indoor public spaces.
Points of installation, such as municipal plazas, municipal libraries, playgrounds, museums, pedestrian walkways, among others, will be indicated by the municipalities. The management, monitoring and control of the equipment will be carried out by a central management system.
The draft declaration was posted on the website www.eprocurement.gov.gr. Proposals can be submitted to the same website. – via telecompaper
