| Jerusalem Installs Free High-Speed Internet, 10x Faster than Tel Aviv

Mayor Moshe Lion: "The deployment of a free wireless internet in the city center places Jerusalem as the capital of Israel's technological innovation, in line with the world's smartest cities. This tech infrastructure will enable internet access at top speeds for all, including the city's residents, businesses, and millions of tourists."

The Municipality of Jerusalem has begun installing free Wi-Fi for residents and visitors in the city center, at an extremely high speed – 16Mb a person (10x the speed of Tel Aviv).

The smart system, which is designed to withstand heavy usage without collapse, has already been installed in the Machane Yehuda market and in the city center on Shammai, Hillel, Ben-Yehuda Streets and Kikar HaHatulot. The network is currently expanding, and in a few months, rapid internet access will be available from Independence Park through all of Jaffa Street.

The rapid network is based on a new millimeter wave technology, which, unlike fiber optic distribution and transmission lines, enables rapid deployment, and does not involve digging, public harm, or fears of radiation.

Since its installation, hundreds of users have connected every day (406 on average), and 2,147 over the course of the week. The usage numbers continue to steadily increase.
