German state of Brandenburg to set up 1,500 free Wi-Fi hotspots

Tuesday 17 April 2018 | 14:26 CET | News
The German state of Brandenburg outside of Berlin has announced plans to create 1,500 free, publicly available Wi-Fi hotspots at towns and municipalities across the state by the summer of 2019. Brandenburg's Ministry of Economics said it will now launch a Europe-wide tendering procedure to appoint a telecoms company with the planning, construction and operation of these public Wi-Fi hotspots. The ministry said it expects the tendering procedure to be concluded by the end of this summer, after which Wi-Fi hotspots will gradually be activated across Brandenburg.
