FREE WI-FI ON BUSES
IMM (Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality) is renewing the internet infrastructure in public transport vehicles. Under the roof of the project, a new IMM WI-FI infrastructure is installed on 1000 buses this year. Thus, free internet became available on more than 3 thousand buses, including metrobuses (Rapid Transit Busses). Free WI-FI can be accessed via the “Istanbul Senin” App. The IMM WI-FI, which serves at a total of 9 thousand 563 points across the city, reaches up to 5 million Istanbulites each day.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) launched a project to make free internet service widespread on public transport vehicles. Within the scope of the works carried out by the Department of Information Technologies and ISTTELKOM, a subsidiary of IMM, the internet infrastructure on 1000 IETT buses was renewed this year. The number of buses, where internet service is presented to the use of the residents of Istanbul, reached up to 3 thousand 312, including Metrobus. Thus, approximately 15 thousand Istanbulites can benefit from free internet while they are travelling.
