25 Jun 2008

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has partnered True Corp to offer wireless internet access via Wi-Fi technology free of charge under its ‘Green Bangkok’ campaign, reports the Bangkok Post. True has been chosen to roll out a Wi-Fi network covering more than 400 square kilometres in the Bangkok area. The BMA will give away 500,000 free Wi-Fi cards to the public as part of an initiative to ‘create a knowledge-based society along with convenience and a safe environment for its residents by introducing wireless internet access as a substitute for physical travel wherever possible.’ BMA governor Apirak Kosayodhin said the goals of the programme are to save energy, reduce expenses, and enhance convenience for online access to knowledge and information anytime and anywhere.
