Singapore: First country in the world that wants to offer free Wi-Fi (Video)

Now, officials in Singapore have a great plan. The Gardens by the Bay is testing a new system within “Super Wi -Fi”. Authorities use old frequencies, which where used to transmit analog TV signals before digitization to launch a public Wi -Fi Internet access.

The Park Gardens by the Bay will run the pilot project and will test a technology that analog TV signals are converted to a frequency that can be used by visitors to access the Internet via a smartphone or other devices capable of connectting to Wi -Fi networks.

Gardens by the Bay is a park that spans 101 hectares and was built 6 years ago on reclaimed land from the sea by the Singapore authorities.

Dr. Ser Wah Oh, the head of the project , says it takes 300-400 base stations to cover the entire island with Wi -Fi signal . If the idea will succeed, authorities in Singapore could become the first country in two years time where the public will benefit from free Wi-Fi internet throughout the country.
