The government of Macau has launched a tender for the upgrade of the wireless broadband system WiFi Go, which is operational since September 2010. The system provides free broadband wireless access at certain government establishments, public facilities and tourist sites in Macau. The Bureau of Telecommunication Regulations will accept bids until 11 June, and the offers will be opened a day later.
The deadline for submission of the tendering documents has been set at 5 p.m. on June 11. The documents will then be opened the following day at 3 p.m.
The government’s “Wifi Go” service provides residents and visitors with free wireless Internet connection at various locations, including selected government premises, public facilities and tourist locations.
However, the service is said to be somewhat controversial. In 2012, the New Macau Association accused the government of censoring and monitoring the content uploaded and downloaded by users whilst connected to the Wi-Fi system.
Contracts and attachments, can be found on the Bureau of Telecommunications Regulation’s website.
