Wi-Fi on the metro was promised before the end of the year, but now delays mean it won’t be available till 2017. Some subway stations already have Wi-Fi signal, but the proposal is to install cables that will give passengers signal in the tunnels as well.
Last year, Prague transport management promised, in cooperation with the Czech mobile operators, to put special, conductive signal cables along the tunnels. The section between the stations Roztyly and Muzeum was supposed to be in operation already.
Director of the Transport Department, Martin Gillar, said: ”Before the end of the year we do not have time. We are in talks with mobile operators about the conditions under which we allow them to set the radiating cables in the subway tunnels. You should understand that any technology in the subway carries special security requirements.”
High-speed internet Prague metro only works in new stations from Dejvická to Nemocnice Motol.
