Since the beginning of the year, 334 more Wi-Fi hotspots have appeared on the Moscow streets. The Wi-Fi network was deployed on the streets of Meshchansky, Presnensky, Donskoy and Danilovsky districts. In addition, the coverage area of the city's Wi-Fi network was expanded on the streets adjacent to the Moscow Zoo, on Pushkin Square, Strastny, Petrovsky and Rozhdestvensky Boulevards.

"Now on the Moscow streets within the Garden and the Third Transport Ring, there are more than 3.7 thousand Wi-Fi hotspots. Every month, about 14 million people connect to street hotspots in the city," Alexander Kharitonov, Head of the Citywide Wi-Fi Project at the Moscow Department of Information Technologies, said.

In total, there are more than 20.2 thousand Wi-Fi hotspots of the city's network. In addition to the streets, free wireless Internet is available in parks, student dormitories, cultural and sports institutions. You can find out if there is a Wi-Fi network in a specific location on a special interactive map of the portal mos.ru.
