Since September last year, 1.7 thousand new points of access to city Wi-Fi have appeared in the capital. This was reported by Natalia Sergunina, Deputy Mayor of Moscow.

“Today the Moscow Wi-Fi network has more than 21.5 thousand access points. Since last autumn, we have increased their number in parks, cultural institutions, student dormitories and on the main streets. It is especially convenient to use wireless Internet in the capital due to its seamlessness: you can move around the city and connect to Wi-Fi during the day without re-authorization, ”noted Natalya Sergunina.
