As part of its public service provision, the government is launching, via Monaco Telecom, its new Monaco WiFi service. Residents and tourists will now enjoy a new connectivity experience in the Principality.
The Monegasque operator has been deploying for several months a new fibre optic network for all 26 hotspots. The aim is to offer better coverage and more efficient flows on more than 30 public sites, including markets, parks, squares, and ports, and post offices, and the railway station.
The WiFi access portal has also been redesigned. It is now in six languages – French, English, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Chinese – and suitable for all types of devices: smartphones, tablets and PCs.
Authentication is simplified, faster and reconnection is automatic. Finally, the portal meets the new Monaco regulations in terms of digital security.
For optimal accessibility, the Monaco Welcome application, developed by the Welcome Office, offers a location-based service for all hotspots.
Access is free for Monaco Telecom customers subscribing to a fixed Internet offer thanks to the MC Nomade account, and a “Discovery Pass” of two hours is also offered free for any new user.
The National Assembly has welcomed the latest graduates to the Principality’s Police Force.
An incredible 12-month time lapse video showing the creation of Monaco’s mammoth land extension project has just been released.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
