Orange Romania backs Continental's free Wi-Fi service in Sibiu buses

Wednesday 12 June 2019 | 15:21 CET | News

Orange Romania said it helps Continental offer free Wi-Fi internet access in over 100 buses owned by the local public transport company in Sibiu, Tursib. Passengers can connect at speeds of up to 500Mbps by tapping Orange's 4G +. The initiative belongs to Continental Sibiu and contributes to the development of the city's smart city strategy.

The Orange platform offers the option to obtain anonymous usage statistics such as the number of accesses, traffic patterns at different times of the year, and demographic information about travelers.

Passengers can access the 'Continental' network without entering a password. In addition, the local Town Hall and Tursib can interact with citizens by transmitting public interest information and publishing opinion polls in the Wi-Fi access portal directly on mobile devices screens, encouraging dialogue between authorities and the community. Internet traffic is filtered through the Business Internet Security service to limit security risks and abusive network usage, Orange said.
