Seoul City said on August 24 that it has finished the installation of wireless access points (AP) a year earlier than the original schedule. There are about 4,080 bus stops in Seoul and the city government newly installed about 2,340 APs.
"We will continue to improve the environment of bus stops for citizens," Roh Byung-chun, Seoul City's bus policy division director, was quoted as saying. The free wireless internet service was first offered in 2018 through collaboration with South Korea's science ministry and 16 local district governments.
Free WiFi services are currently offered in South Korea's public spaces including subway trains and parks. Some 35,600 buses across the country provide mobile WiFi services for passengers.
