First public Wi-Fi hotspots operational in Cancun Hotel Zone

Cancun, Q.R. — The city of Cancun has inaugurated its first two public Wi-Fi hotspots. The free high-speed internet service can be accessed at Kilometer Zero at the mouth of the Cancun Hotel Zone as well as at Playa Delfines.

“This free high-speed internet service consolidates us in connectivity and tourism development heading towards a Cancun of the future,” said Cancun Mayor Ana Paty Peralta adding that that this type of service has the quality required by a world-class destination such as Cancun.

The two public Wi-Fi zones were officially opened Wednesday, both located in the Cancun Hotel Zone. Peralta says they are the first two free public high-speed internet modules in the Mexican Caribbean.

During the inauguration, she thanked the Ministry of Tourism and the private company GigNet for the combined efforts to offer the hotspot.

The Vice President of GigNet, Luis de Potestad, announced that the city was at the forefront with the internet, as he expressed that the Playa Delfines module will have four access points with the capacity to serve more than 200 mobile devices.

The Wi-Fi hotspot at Kilometer Zero has two access points. Both locations will cover a linear coverage of more than 50 meters.

State Governor Mara Lezama says connectivity should be a right of every human being. “We are the first state to have a digital public policy. With this universal access, we are doing social justice and bridging inequality gaps,” she commented.

Authorities say the public hotspot modules will continue to be installed around the state including the municipalities of Tulum, Solidaridad, Isla Mujeres and Cozumel.
