Legislator defends Wi-Fi project

18 Oct 2006

Plans to deploy a Wi-Fi network in Argentine capital Buenos Aires have been defended by the government, BNamericas reports. Legislator Diego Santilli said that the free wireless broadband network in the capital would not interfere with ISP services, the idea being that Wi-Fi services were offered in public spaces and would generate new business opportunities. He added that he also expects the service to reach areas where ISPs do not operate.
