Thai state-owned telco TOT has partnered the city of Phuket to provide the public with free Wi-Fi broadband internet access in the tourist resort under the banner ‘Phuket Free Wi-Fi’. Two public parks – Saphan Hin and Chalermprakiat – are the initial areas covered by TOT’s hotspot mesh, with Wi-Fi access available without charge to those registering at a park service point. The city has initially targeted at least 600 monthly users for the service, with each user being given two hours web access per login session.
