Free Wi-Fi in Centro

By Jesús Aguado

The local government and AT&T have teamed up to place 20 Internet hot spots downtown in order to provide free Wi-Fi connections to locals and visitors.

The company picked San Miguel in which to place 20 repeaters. Now those with a laptop, tablet, or cell phone can connect to the Internet easily, regardless of what company provides their telephone service. The service went into effect on May 8, and according to interim mayor Gonzalo González, will not cost the city any money because expenses are covered by AT&T.

Five hot spots have been placed in the Jardín Principal. Each of the repeaters, according to representatives of the company, can provide quality service to up to 70 devices at the same time. The number of devices served could be raised infinitely, but the service would be of low quality, officials said. The repeaters are placed mainly in public plazas.

The network is Free AT&T. In order to be connected, users need to provide a phone number or an email address and must accept all terms and conditions.
