MOSCOW, October 5 (Itar-Tass) - The passengers of Moscow’s metro will enjoy free Wi-Fi access to the Internet starting from next year, Deputy Mayor Maksim Liksutov said on Friday.
“We’ll cope with the task next year. August at the latest. We shall make sure Wi-Fi is available on all trains and on all lines, except for stations possibly in June or July,” Liksutov said on the Moskva-24 round the clock television news channel.
On the circular line trains Wi-Fi Internet access will become available by the end of this year. The senior official promised that Internet access on Moscow metro trains would be always free and of good quality, letting passengers use their tablets, laptops or smart phones.
“Originally we had counted on mobile operators. We hoped they would create a Wi-Fi network for us. Unfortunately, we have just wasted time. Now we have found a partner who has agreed to do that for free. Neither the Moscow authorities, nor the Moscow metro will invest a dime. And the contract says quite clearly that Wi-Fi connection will be always free.”
