▲ The “2022 WirelessInternet Infrastructure Expansion Project” appears to be ready to startinstalling Wi-Fi modules to offer free internet access in public venues tolocals. The city administration recently completed its inspection of potentialsites that are expected to receive these new Wi-Fi modules.

Unlike in the past, thisproject also chose 40 locations based on the feedback city officials collectedfrom locals to expand the coverage of its free Wi-Fi network to districts inthe old city center with poor access to Wi-Fi and mobile network access inpublic venues.

The City’s administrationhas long been trying to work with the central government to build thecommunication infrastructure locals need, and it has consulted expert groups tooffer public Wi-Fi to coastal passenger vessels to Ongjin-gun and otherlocations with poor Wi-Fi coverage. Upon launching this new project, Incheonconducted on-site inspections of previously built facilities, and it said thatit plans on making every effort to improve the satisfaction level of locals byproviding better quality services, which includes replacing old and outdatedWi-Fi equipment.


▲ The goal of this Wi-Fiproject is to install modules in a total of 773 locations with the highest usertraffic to make sure the public Wi-Fi network is actually useful to the localswho use the service.

To use the public Wi-Fimodules installed as part of this project, users can use an open SSID(PublicWifi@Free) network or use a secure PublicWifi@Secure network where theywould need to enter an ID and password. As for the latter, both the secure IDand password are “wifi,” and officials said the City’s administration plans onpromoting the network to maximize uptake.
