Next year, the Information and Communication Technology Ministry (ICT) will provide free wifi service at more than 400,000 spots throughout Thailand, reports the Pattaya Mail.
Over 270,000 free wifi spots have already been installed over the last two years and another 150,000 will be added throughout the next year. The project is being funded by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission (NBTC) and will cost 950 million baht.
The 2Mbps wifi will give up to 10 million people throughout Thailand access to the internet for free. People will be required to register for free for periods of six months and will be restricted to two hours per day at 20 minutes per use. State owned TOT Plc has been charged with providing the equipment as well as managing and maintaining the network.
