Mauritius government launches 350 new Wi-Fi zones in 20 locations nationwide

10 Apr 2017

The Mauritius government in partnership with Mauritius Telecom (MT) has announced the launch of 350 new free public Wi-Fi spaces in 20 locations across the island, writes Defi Media. The rollout is a continuation of the ‘Wi-Fi Mauritius’ project and significant new locations for the project include Port Louis, Riviere des Anguilles, Beau Bassin, Rose Hill, Bambous, Flacq and Mapou. The Wi-Fi hotspots will allow users to access connection speeds of 2Mbps, and commenting on the launch, MT CEO Sherry Singh said: ‘We can connect 200 people simultaneously within a radius of 50 metres in 350 Wi-Fi zones. The amount of data that MT will provide on a daily basis has a huge cost. But we think it’s worth it because we have to help the country develop.’
