Public housing residents will get free Wi-fi internet services from today. Each household will receive a login account which can be used for up to 30 minutes between 6am and 11pm on the ground floors and adjoining outdoor areas of estates. The Housing Authority has set up about 1,000 access points that allow free internet access within 30 metres. About 120 estates are covered. Users need to register first and must have their own internet surfing devices. Access to pornographic websites is banned. Ho Chi-shing, chief building services engineer, said surfing time was restricted as the network could support only about 13 users at a time.
