The Government collaborates with the industry to promote a common Wi-Fi brand “Wi-Fi.HK” for those Wi-Fi services in Hong Kong which are offered by the public and private sectors completely free of charge or time-limited free of charge in Hong Kong. Organisations and Wi-Fi service providers are welcome to join this scheme.
The objectives of this scheme are to:
- make it easier for the public and visitors to find and use the free 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.
