Towards making the Punjab a global level of the province and to facilitate the better coordination between the people, the Government of Punjab in April had announced to install the free Wi-Fi hotspots in significant public places in Lahore, Rawalpindi, and Multan. Free WiFi had been made available to Lahore in the mentioned month, and now its Multan turns to get the free WiFi at almost thirty places.
Free Wi-Fi that was the long-discussed project of the Punjab Government is going to become a reality now. Punjab Information Technology Board and Umar Saif Vice Chancellor of ITU and Chairman PBIT have shared the news of the free Wi-Fi. According to recent news by the PBIT, the preparations to provide the free WiFi to Multan have been finalized. PBIT is going to provide the free WiFi in collaboration with PTCL.
