Deputy Mayor of Moscow, Natalia Sergunina, said that in nine years the city’s Wi-Fi network has become one of the largest in the world.
According to Sergunina, more than 62 million times people have connected to the network since the beginning of 2022, and the traffic volume has exceeded 8 Pbytes (8 million Gbytes). Now the city’s Wi-Fi network has more than 24 thousand access points and coverage is constantly expanding.
As specified, since the beginning of this year, about 800 new access points have appeared in the city. In particular, urban Wi-Fi began to work throughout the central part of VDNKh — from the arch of the main entrance to the Industrial Square and the Vostok launch vehicle. About 60 free Internet access points have been installed there.
It was also explained that one can see where there is Wi-Fi nearby on the interactive map on the Moscow official portal mos.ru. At the same time, the user can move around the city and connect to the wireless network in different parts of the city without re-authorization during the day.
