Free Wi-Fi service at public places

LOCALS will enjoy free Wi-Fi for two hours each day at 26 public places in Shanghai by the end of this month, the latest effort the government takes to build a "wireless city."
By the end of this year, the free Wi-Fi service will cover about 300 places, and the number is expected to reach 450 by the end of next year. The places will have signs tagging them as "i-Shanghai," said the city information technology authority.
To enjoy the service, users can turn on the Wi-Fi connection on their mobile devices, select "i-Shanghai," get a password by inputting your mobile phone number and log in.
Zhang Jianming, an official with the local information technology commission, said yesterday that the fares will be covered by the municipal and district governments.
Zhang said the service provider bans users from linking to video clips online at the beginning stage to ensure the smooth login of other users sending or receiving e-mails.
Users can apply to different telecom operators and they will not view advertisements after they log in.
