The service is expected to become operational on April 20, about ten days before Hạ Long Tourism Week 2012.

Tourists and residents will be able to access free Wi-Fi throughout the city, but will be charged for using entertainment services or when exceeding download limits.

The construction of an information technology infrastructure is essential to the city becoming a modern tourist destination.

The supply of free wifi hotspots in Hạ Long is part of a wireless installation project in Quảng Ninh province which targets to cover all townships and cities by 2015.

Hạ Long will be the second locality in Việt Nam providing free-of-charge Wi-Fi services after the central city of Hội An./.
