Tel Aviv, the city that never goes offline

Public wireless network will enable residents of Tel Aviv and visitors to enjoy free high-speed Internet connections • The project will include 80 Wi-Fi relay stations at a cost of around 6 million shekels ($1.6 million).

Residents of Tel Aviv and visitors to the city will soon be able to enjoy free high-speed Internet connection throughout the city. The project is said to cost the municipality around 6 million shekels ($1.6 million).
Motorola Solutions, the company that won the tender to establish the citywide wireless network, will in the coming months install 80 base stations for Wi-Fi connection throughout the city in stages. The locations of the stations will include sites along the coast, main boulevards in the city, Charles Clore Park in the south, Florentine neighborhood, the Hatikva market area, public parks in the north and south, Lahat Promenade (Herbert Samuel Street), Old Jaffa neighborhood, Ibn Gvirol Street and other sites.
The project calls for an assistance service to be made available for Internet users 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Alon Solar, a member of the municipality’s governing council and an initiator of the project, said that in this age of smartphones and laptops, most of us want to be connected all the time. “In the 21st century, free access to the Internet is a basic service that every municipality should offer its residents and local and international visitors,” he said.
Motorola Solutions Israel CEO Shimon Dick said, “I am glad that Tel Aviv has joined our other clients, like Israel Railways and Ashkelon municipality, and has chosen a solutions based on advanced and high quality Motorola technological systems. The project is one of many the company has implemented throughout the world.”
