Moroccan network operator Inwi (Wana) has launched an outdoor Wi-Fi service in Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco. According to a press release posted on the operator’s website, the company trialled the technology in El Jadida in July 2013, after telecoms watchdog the National Agency of Telecommunications Regulation (ANRT) recommended an expansion of Wana’s wireless broadband coverage, thus making the services accessible to more of the population. The free ‘Wifi7dak’ service, which offers average download speeds of 3Mbps, is said to be complementary to 3G and traditional Wi-Fi networks, and covers a large urban area, including the arrondissements of Derb Ghallef and Maarif and the Mohammed V and United Nations squares. The operator aims to offer the service in 22 cities by the second half of 2015.
