Free Wi-Fi Smart Palms sprouting in Dubai
Dozens of six-metre-tall stations to come up in parks, beaches and other locations
Dubai: Dubai is rolling out dozens of new Smart Palm stations that provide free wireless internet access in parks, beaches and other locations.
The UAE-made stations, standing six metres tall in the shape of a palm tree, also have fast mobile phone charging stations and screens displaying information on Dubai’s attractions.
The first Smart Palm was installed at gate six of Zabeel Park on Wednesday and there are plans to fix over 50 more of them in other parks, beaches and other locations over the course of the year.
