Old Montréal goes WI-FI

In partnership with the Palais des congrès and Montréal en Histoire, the Ville de Montréal is deploying a free Wi-Fi network, MtlWiFi. The Old Montréal part of the network is the first step in a project that will eventually extend to other areas designated in the 2015- 2017 Montréal Smart and Digital City Action Plan over the next three years. The goal is to provide quality service with a simple, easy-to-use connection that is standard across the network. At the hotspots, the network will be functional at all times and can be used occasionally instead of a residential or fixed commercial service.

This is the beginning of the Ville de Montréal’s gradual deployment of its free wireless Internet network. It will create a coverage area serving Old Montréal and the area around the Palais des Congrès.

MtlWifi does not require any identification (direct access with no username or password). Just select MtlWifi on your wireless device.

The city is aiming for a limit of one gigabyte (downloads and uploads combined) at each hotspot per period of seven days, or the equivalent of about one downloaded film.

To find out all the details, go to www.ville.montreal.qc.ca/mtlwifi

* MtlWifi is not a substitute for permanent commercial or residential Wi-Fi services.
