PCCW-HKT, Hong Kong’s largest fixed line network operator, has sub-contracted Aruba Networks to supply secure wireless network equipment as part of a government Wi-Fi programme to provide free internet access hotspots at around 350 locations. Thirty locations, mainly government buildings, were commissioned in March, and the remaining hotspots are due for installation by mid-2009. A total of 2,000 hotspots will be rolled out under the programme.
