The map of 115 free wi-fi hotspots, that were launched in Minsk in April, has been presented by the service provider.
Public Internet points are located in shopping centers, cafes, petrol stations, banks around the Belarusian capital.
“The map shows 115 active spots in over a hundred locations. Their number will be growing,” the provider commented. It also revealed the plan to install wi-fi spots at Kastryčnickaja and Kupalaŭskaja metro stations in a few months.
In addition to access points in Minsk, the map features wi-fi access points in Brest, Vitebsk, Grodno, Mogilev, and Molodechno, and the future free wi-fi spots in other regions of Belarus. The network is called Free Wi-Fi BY.
As other public wi-fi networks in Belarus, Free Wi-Fi BY requires authentication of the user with the help of a mobile phone number. There is an English-language menu and SIM-cards of foreign mobile providers are supported.
The advantage of Free Wi-Fi BY network is a single authentication. Having done it once, the user can easily re-connect to spots in any of the locations without limitations.
