A free wifi tile sign in Dublin
Dublin’s public free wifi is gone.
Damien Murphy and Lois Kapila, in the Dublin Inquirer, write:
“[Christy Beal] and her family – over from New Jersey for a short break – had tried to log in at a few of the Dublin public free wifi spots around the city. “I’ve been looking for the signs,” she said. Scan for wifi connections and you can see the network and a healthy number of bars but, so far, she hadn’t managed to connect.”
“That’s because in May this year, Dublin City Council quietly made use of a break clause to terminate its contract with Gowex, the wifi firm that had been providing the service. So, there’s no public free wifi facilitated by Dublin City Council available right now, said Sinéad Murphy from the council’s press office.”
“It’s a shame nobody’s told confused holidaymakers. Or, for that matter, local councillors.”
