Title: Downtown Paphos to get free Wi-Fi
Post by: Admin on May 07 2010 01:31AM
FREE WIRELESS internet access is coming to Paphos, courtesy of the municipality and state telecommunications authority, CyTA.

"We are planning to install free Wi Fi access in the most popular areas of Paphos," said  CyTA's head of business customer services, Andreas Kampanellas.

"It will cover the Kato Paphos area along the coastal front, running from the castle up to the Penguin cafe. The area of coverage will also include Kennedy square," he said.

The new scheme is a response to the numerous requests to install free Wi-Fi access from the mayor of Paphos Savvas Vegas and tourists and visitors to the town.

The areas to receive coverage were specifically chosen due to the high demand.

The project will cost between €10,000-15,000 to set up, with CyTA picking up the tab.

"We are hoping that we won’t encounter any technical difficulties along the way," said Kampanellas, who said investing in the scheme is good advertising for the company.

"The publicity which will generate from this new project will be very beneficial to us," he added.

The project will take between four to eight weeks to complete and according to Kampanellas final details are being sorted out with the municipality.

"If we can complete it before the summer it would be great," he said.
