Argentina’s Rosario city municipality has launched a Wi-Fi pilot project, according to BNamericas, quoting local newspaper Infobae. The initial area of coverage is limited to downtown Rosario. All the infrastructure required to launch the pilot program was installed by local companies Openware and Transdatos. The Wi-Fi programme is part of the Ciudad Digital 2010 project, proposed by councillor Jorge Boasso, which the municipality approved in October last year. Cuidad Digital 2010 proposes to provide Wi-Fi connections in airports, bus stations, public offices and universities, and is expected to be completed during 2008.
