With the concerted efforts of both public and private sectors, Hong Kong’s Wi-Fi penetration is among the highest in the world. To ride on this success, the Government is collaborating with the industry to promote the common Wi-Fi brand Wi-Fi.HK for those public Wi-Fi services in Hong Kong which are offered by the public and private sectors completely or time-limited free of charge. Wi-Fi service providers as well as public and private organisations are welcome to join this scheme.
With this scheme, it can facilitate the public and visitors to find and use the free public Wi-Fi services available in Hong Kong. Locations of the free Wi-Fi hotspots offered by the organisations can be searched via the Wi-Fi.HK website or the mobile app.
The objectives of this scheme are to:
- make it easier for the public and visitors to find and use the free public Wi-Fi services in Hong Kong;
- stimulate the development of public Wi-Fi in Hong Kong; and
- further advance Hong Kong’s position as a highly connected city in the world.
