Wi-Fi pilot ‘in the next few weeks’

9 Mar 2007

BNamericas reports that the pilot phase of Rosario’s municipal Wi-Fi project is to get underway in the next few weeks. Local IT companies Openware and Transdatos won an auction to deploy the first equipment in the downtown area, whilst broadband service will be supplied by the local unit of Mexican group Telmex. The city of Rosario, Argentina’s third largest, announced its ‘Cuidad Digital 2010’ project last October, and intends to launch a tender next month for a larger scale WiMAX project with Wi-Fi hotspots across the city, including its airport, university, bus stations and public offices.
