Tel Aviv Mayoral Candidate Irked by Free Wi-Fi Plan
Times of Israel – In the latest installment of an ambitious plan to digitalize the city, the Tel Aviv municipality announced that it would provide free wifi connections at 80 hotspots around the city. It’s the kind of city program it would be very hard to find fault with – unless, of course, you were a rival of the mayor who came up with the idea.
The free wifi program is part of Tel Aviv’s overall strategy to position Tel Aviv as the Start-up City, a hub of innovation and creativity, announced several months ago. Free wifi will be available in 80 different locations citywide, including beaches, entertainment centers and tourist attractions.
