The ‘Connected Public Spaces’ initiative will use resources from the National Telecommunications Fund (Fonatel) to connect parks, libraries, train stations, civic centres and public universities in 82 cantons.

The contracts will be signed next month, with operators given two months to deliver the first ten Wi-Fi zones of each region, said Sutel.
