Spanish tourist hotspots join WBA OpenRoaming public Wi-Fi community

Wednesday 21 October 2020 | 14:45 CET | News
The Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) announced that Spain has become the latest country to join its global Wi-Fi community based on the OpenRoaming standard it took over from Cisco earlier this year. In a statement, the WBA said major tourist destinations in Spain will be deploying the standard, which removes the need for users to search for Wi-Fi networks, repeatedly enter their login details or constantly re-register to access public Wi-Fi.
