City looking to set up free wi-fi zones

Free wi-fi zones could be coming to Hamilton.

A spokeswoman for the Corporation of Hamilton said the city was looking into the service, although there would be costs associated.

Walter Roban, the Minister of Home Affairs, said proposals were under discussion with the corporation for a “smart city” programme.

“We’re looking at the greater use of technology in the management of the municipality,” Mr Roban said.

“That will allow people to engage with matters such as transport and everyday goings-on in Hamilton.

“That is something I am certainly going to be following through — it was started by the previous minister.”

Hamilton first rolled out cheap wi-fi in 2012. The corporation’s spokeswoman said that the city “would love to offer this and move forward if the right opportunity came up”.
