The municipality has already chosen the operator which will integrate all currently available public Wi-Fi networks, though it has not disclosed any names. The integration will enable users to access Wi-Fi across the city without repeated authorisations.

First of all, we installed it in parks and student dormitories, then on the main streets. Now the capital’s Wi-Fi network is one of the largest in the world. More than 18 thousand access points, including in libraries and museums, ”said Sobyanin.

Public Wi-Fi services became available in Moscow in September 2013. Over 18,000 hotspots are currently present in the city.
