Gibraltar on track to obtain 100% WI-FI connectivity at tourist locations

Minister for Tourism, Commercial Affairs, Public Transport and the Port, Neil Costa
MP has announced that most of Gibraltar’s beaches, tourist sites, hotels and places
of interest now have WI-FI Hotspots up and running, part of an ambitious project by
the Gibraltar Government to provide 100% internet coverage of these areas
throughout the Rock.
The latest areas to obtain outdoor online connectivity are Moorish Castle, Europa
Point, the Great Siege Tunnels and the Gibraltar Museum. This amenity will be
available to the local population and visitors whose tourist experience of the Rock will
be greatly enhanced with this new service.
Wi-Fi Hotspots in Gibraltar now cover 80% of the main public locations with the latest
four sites having been incorporated in the last fortnight, bringing the total to 18 fully
operational locations.
The initiative was first announced by Minister Costa in his Budget address of 2012,
with further detail being made public in 2013.
The Gibraltar Tourist Board has also taken a leading role in the project with the
technical groundwork carried out by local telecommunications provider Gibtelecom.
Work on the five remaining sites is currently under way and it is expected that the
project will be completed before the end of the year. Additional sites are being
planned by Gibtelecom with further enhancements to the service in 2014.
Minister Costa welcomed the progress and the incorporation of four new sites to the
WI-FI Hotspot project.
“We are delighted that our target of 100% WI-FI Hotspots for Gibraltar tourist
locations is now within our grasp. This represents a great technical achievement for
Gibtelecom which will deliver a major marketable asset for the local tourist product. I
first gave indication of the project in 2012 and I am pleased to bring this to fruition
through the Gibraltar Tourist Board with the excellent technical work carried out by
