26 sec read

São Paulo is currently in the process of bringing free, public Wi-Fi to everyone in the city. The cost of this scheme was originally expect to be around $6.4 million but has since been decreased by 40% to $3.5 million.

The tendering process for the implementation of public Wi-fi spots in the city of São Paulo has been concluded, with the final contract value being 40 percent lower than originally expected. Praças Digitais (Digital Squares, in Portuguese) is a project that aims at providing free web access to the city of 11 million people, while also preparing for the increased number of tourists that are expected to visit the city during the major sporting events that will be taking place in Brazil in the coming years.
