Minister for Tourism, Commercial Affairs, Public Transport and the Port, Neil Costa MP has announced that most of Gibraltar’s beaches, tourist sites, hotels and places of interest now have WI-FI Hotspots up and running, part of an ambitious project by the Gibraltar Government to provide 100% internet coverage of these areas throughout the Rock.
The latest areas to obtain outdoor online connectivity are Moorish Castle, Europa Point, the Great Siege Tunnels and the Gibraltar Museum. This amenity will be available to the local population and visitors whose tourist experience of the Rock will be greatly enhanced with this new service.
Wi-Fi Hotspots in Gibraltar now cover 80% of the main public locations with the latest four sites having been incorporated in the last fortnight, bringing the total to 18 fully operational locations.
The initiative was first announced by Minister Costa in his Budget address of 2012, with further detail being made public in 2013.
