P1 to deploy 1,500 Wi-Fi hotspots in Kuala Lumpur

Tuesday 18 December 2007 | 15:48 CET | News
Packet One Networks (P1) has been tasked to deploy 1,500 Wi-Fi hotspots in Kuala Lumpur by May 2008. The Wi-Fi deployment is part of the government-backed KL Wireless Metropolitan Project aimed at making Kuala Lumpur a wireless city by 2009. With the signing of the memorandum of understanding between P1, the communications regulator and city government P1 will now begin the roll out of 1,500 Wi-Fi hotspots, starting with the Golden Triangle, community areas and city offices. The KL Wireless Metropolitan Project is one of five main projects in the communications commission's Klang Valley Broadband Push plan developed to increase broadband coverage areas within Klang Valley and subsequently, to reinforce the foundation for a knowledge-based economy to further develop ICT as a whole. Aside from offering free 512 Kbps broadband connectivity for KLites and tourists for two years when fully deployed, the project hopes to help boost tourism, economic capabilities and social and education opportunities for the city. P1 is part of the Green Packet company and was recently awarded a WiMAX licence in Malaysia.
