Riviera Maya, Q.R. — The Government of Quintana Roo will continue to expand free WiFi hotspots throughout the state in the New Year. Javier Abraham Ayuso, General Director of the Quintanarroense Institute of Innovation and Technology (IQIT), says the government will work on expanding the hotspots in 2023 to ensure all communities have access.
He says it is the state’s rural communities in particular that are in need of the WiFi hotspots since they do not have access to Internet in their homes. With that, the Government of Quintana Roo intends to increase free internet connectivity points.
“We are resuming this project to flood all of Quintana Roo with Internet. Since we cannot provide Internet to every house, we can establish free points,” he said. Ayuso pointed out that there are currently 131 free hotspot points in 82 towns.
Ayuso, the Managing Director of Instituto Quintanarroense de Innovación y Tecnología (IQIT), said inspections are being done at the existing Internet points to determine how many are currently in operation.
