Amsterdam Free Wifi

Due to the rising amount of day-trippers, the municipality of Amsterdam and bars in the harbour of IJburg wanted to facilitate Free Wifi. The success was enforced by the 4 leg cooperation between municipality, entrepreneurs, Amsterdam Smart City (ASC) and KPN. The initiative of combining fibre as wifi antenna connector has come up from ASC and the municipality. Together with café’s and KPN, the free wifi was set up.

From April 2013 onwards, the harbour of IJburg has its own live ‘Amsterdam Free wifi’. The next step will be to extend this project of Free Wifi to other public places in Amsterdam.
