Free Wi-Fi will appear in the St. Petersburg metro

Smolny is in talks with Maxima Telecom to launch the ubiquitous free Wi-Fi in the metro. About this writes "Fontanka." Wireless Internet in the St. Petersburg metro will be carried out according to the same technology that was used in the Moscow subway, because earlier Maxima Telecom was implementing the same project in the Moscow metro.

Start covering the metro tunnels with free W-Fi already at the end of this year. The company is ready to fully implement the project in just eight months. During this time, “Maxima Telecom” will install base stations every 450 meters of tunnels and supply the trains with special antennas that pick up the signal and transmit it to the salon. To connect to the Network, the user will need to enter their phone number or password from the public services portal. You only need to do this once - the next time authentication will happen automatically.
