'Hot Spots' to boost wireless connectivity in GCC region

posted on 26/10/2004: 708 views

The evolving Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) WLAN technology that allows high-speed wireless Internet through access points called "hot spots" at public places is gathering momentum in the Gulf region in general and Dubai in particular.

The GCC is projected to have over 1,000 "hot spots" by the end of 2006, with a total number of 250,000 users. In the same period, Dubai's current figure of 35 hot spots is expected to jump to 140, with a total number of 35,000 users, driven by demand from businessmen and foreign visitors travelling to Dubai, according to a recent study conducted by Dubai-based Madar Research Group, a press release said.

The Madar study shows that in Dubai most of the hot spots are found in five-star hotels, while the rest are found in coffee shops and exhibition centres such as the Dubai World Trade Centre. Emirates Airline too offers hotspots on its Airbus 345 flights between Dubai and New York, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Christchurch. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
