The wi-fi hotspots will be initially providing free internet connection to 100 archaeological sites and museums, as well as 200 ports and marinas.
People will be able to connect to the internet for 30 minutes, provided that they are within 20 meters from the access point when indoors and 100 meters when outdoors. Each access point will be able to serve 40-50 users simultaneously.
The project, totaling 15 million euros, has been applied for by four companies: OTE, TELESTO, COSMOS BUSINESS SYSTEMS, ZTE HELLAS and INTRACOM.
According to the Ministry, “This is the biggest effort, internationally, on a coverage area basis and its practice is going to be an example for the European Union”.
