Tel Aviv Begins Beaming WiFi Waves To Tourists
The days of hopping between coffee shops and other WiFi hotspots are becoming fewer and fewer, as yet another country is beaming out Internet waves to tourists and locals alike.
Last month, Tel Aviv flipped the switch for free-for-all-WiFi to ensure everyone can stay connected. Whether they’re strolling the beach or checking out a little history, the city clearly understands visitors need to document visits instantly—through social media of course.
In total, the plan is to install around 80 or so hotspots, and the good news is that most of them are already up and running. If all goes accordingly, another 20 or so should be up and running in the next couple of months.
So if you’re roaming around the city anytime soon, be sure that your WiFi is flipped on in the settings of your favorite mobile device. After that, look for the network known as “free_tlv,” and you should be good to go—assuming you agree to the terms, conditions, rules, and regulations.
