Authorities in the central Vietnamese province of Thua Thien Hue have approved a project to install wireless Internet in the capital Hue for locals and tourists to access for free, VnExpress reported.
The Vietnam Data Communication Region 30 (VDC3), a subsidiary of the state-owned Vietnam Post and Telecommunications group, would have to invest at least VND20 billion (US$955,000) to carry out the work, the news website quoted an unnamed official as saying.
Hue authorities are surveying tourism sites and public places like train and bus stations to choose the wi-fi locations so that it is accessible from any part of town.
VDC3 is in the process of drafting comprehensive plans, the official said.
