The City of Brussels Wi-Fi network has been integrated with the regional network, wifi.brusselsAll 29 hotspots in the city of Brussels Wi-Fi network have been linked up with the regional network, wifi.brussels. From now on, the Brussels Region has a single free public Wi-Fi network. The migration of the 29 hotspots was made possible thanks to an agreement between the Brussels Secretary of State for Digital Transition, Bianca Debaets, and the Alderman in charge of IT in the City of Brussels, Mohamed Ouriaghli. So wifi.brussels is now also available in the Grand-Place, Place de la Monnaie, Place de Brouckère, Place du Jeu de Balle and Place Emile Bockstael. The merged network is known as wifi.brussels and comprises a total of 165 access points scattered across the entire Region. Over a million user profiles have been created since wifi.brussels was launched at the start of the year.
“I am proud that we can at last offer the people of Brussels and visitors to our Region a unified Wi-Fi network. It is only logical to opt to merge the existing networks and use a single, clear brand name: wifi.brussels”, says Bianca Debaets, the Brussels Secretary of State for IT and Digital Transition. “I would like to thank the City of Brussels, Alderman Ouriaghli and his services for their very positive cooperation in this matter. The wifi.brussels network had already become the standard in the Brussels Region, but with the integration of access points across Brussels, Laeken, Haren and Neder-Over-Heembeek, we are of course able to provide an even more complete service. Offering free Wi-Fi to everyone helps to improve digital access to our Region which is essential for Brussels today and in the future.”
