On July 16 a free Wi-Fi network started operating in Taras Shevchenko Park and on Lva Tolstoho Square in Kyiv, deputy head of Kyiv City State Administration Ruslan Kramarenko has said.
"By the end of summer we're planning to connect Ivan Franko Square, Obolonska Quay, Kontraktova Ploscha and Pozniaky Park to a Wi-Fi free network," the administration press service quotes Kramarenko as saying.
According to him, from the moment the project was launched, over 140,000 people had used this free service.
He also noted that the Kyiv Free Wi-Fi project was launched in the center of Kyiv on May 27. Kyiv City State Administration (Kyiv City Council municipal enterprise) participated in the project, while Kyiv Free Wi-Fi and life:) companies were its sponsors.
"I want to note that the city spent no budget funds for this project. Sponsors financed the whole project. The cost of the project is UAH 2 million," he said.
