Abu Dhabi: The Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) in Abu Dhabi has launched free public Wi-Fi coverage across the emirate — including public transport buses, beaches, and public parks.

The initiative aims to support Abu Dhabi’s smart city development and advance its digital infrastructure.

The initiative is provided by DMT in collaboration with UAE service providers.

The initiative provides public Wi-Fi coverage in various locations, including public parks (19 in Abu Dhabi, 11 in Al Ain and 14 in Al Dhafra Region), and will soon be available at Abu Dhabi Corniche beach and Al Bateen beach.

Mohamed Ali Al Shorafa, Chairman of DMT, said: “We are proud to offer this service, ensuring connectivity for everyone across all locations. Abu Dhabi’s global ranking at 13 out of 141 cities in the IMD Smart City Index 2023 reaffirms our commitment to openness, innovation, inclusivity and sustainability, validating our dedication to smart city development.”
