From April 2015, you will be able to use free Wi-Fi in Thailand as part of a new government initiative.
The free Wi-Fi service will see more than 130,000 Wi-Fi hotspots installed throughout the country and is part of the government’s pledge to return happiness to the Thai people.
Maj-Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd, deputy spokesman for the Information and Communication Technology Ministry said he expected the installation of the Wi-Fi hotspots would be completed by the official launch of the scheme which is in April.
The move to introduce free Wi-Fi in Thailand is seen as a positive and much needed step in Thailand’s bid to become a hub for digital eCommerce, as per plans unveiled by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha earlier in December.
Earlier this month the government announced that it had given the go-ahead for mobile communication providers to begin testing 4G, which will also be rolled out in the early part of next year.
