In a tweet posted by telecoms operator du today, they’ve mentioned that they will be offering free Wi-Fi in all public places all over Dubai and Abu Dhabi. This is in line with the UAE’s vision to be a Smart City and its 2021 vision, turning the entire UAE into a W-Fi hotspot
While no other details were revealed, issues such as speed and security come to mind. As evidenced with other Wi-Fi enabled areas here. While they are free, there are times when speed is throttled and loading a simple webpage takes forever. Let us see if this new initiative will literally bring the UAE into the information superhighway.
