Monday 21 September 2015 | 10:47 CET | News
In cooperation with the city council and the grassroots initiative Freifunk, regional operator NetAachen has announced it is to provide the refugee shelter on Franzstrasse with free internet. The city council granted permission and bore the costs of the Freifunk-enabled routers, while Freifunk installed the WLAN access. The accommodation on Reumontstrasse is also connected to free internet; the shelters on Michaelsbergstrasse, Barbarastrasse and Kirchberg are due to follow shortly, for which the new cooperation partner Notebookkontor wants to donate routers.
