Mexico City to expand Wi-Fi to 70% of metro by year-end

Monday 22 January 2018 | 11:30 CET | News
Mexico City's metro is aiming to expand Wi-Fi coverage to 70 percent of the network by the end of 2018, reports Diario de Mexico, citing the transport system's head Jorge Gavino. The announcement comes a month after Wi-Fi was activated on line 7 of the metro, with coverage on line 1 set to follow by the end of January. The network will eventually offer connectivity in the system's 195 stations and along all 12 Metro lines, plus free Wi-Fi to all riders on 11 of the 12 lines by 2019, said Gavino.
