Barcelona Free WiFi has been rolled out across the city by the Barcelona Council. The system will have 500 "hot Spots" and the intention is to cover most of Barcelona city, from Barceloneta to Sarria. People will even be able to connect to the free wifi whilst sat on the beach!
This is the latest development from a city which has managed to stay "fresh" ever since it's reinvention for the 1992 Olympic Games.
Using any type of mobile device from an iphone to a laptop connection is possible to this system. However, as you would expect, there are sites considered inappropriate that you will not be able to connect to. It is also not possible to connect to Messenger systems. The system however has been designed to be very easier to use and it does appear so.
Should people have problems with the system the Barcelona Council has provided a support guide in three languages, Catalan, English and Spanish. A map system is also available to allow people to check coverage. Indeed, you can even enter a postcode in a search system to confirm your coverage.
Despite the small restriction on messenger systems the offering of free WiFi will be a real help to tourists who want to keep with family and friends whilst they enjoy the many benefits of Barcelona. It will also allow tourists to print off boarding passes for their return journeys, allow them to book hire cars and even to book an apartment in Barcelona. Barcelona is also attracting more and more businesses and this results in more and more business travelers. For these travelers, WiFi is an essential.
