Minister Roshi Bhadain, now in charge of the ministry of technology, has announced that 350 Wi-Fi hotspot networks will be set up all across the island by the end of this year.
The Wi-Fi project will be executed with the cooperation of Mauritius Telecom. Mauritians will then be able to have access to their emails, and any other website they wish to, wherever they are. Minister Roshi Bhadain announced the news at the launching of the interactive web platform of Mauritius Union.
This will allow the insurance company to be available 24 hours a day. The platform will be accessible to the public, clients or otherwise. It will help reduce the time between the first contact with the client and the registration process.
Roshi Bhadain also explained that the government made Internet access a right for all citizens. He later announced that the ministry has launched a market sounding exercise for the installation of undersea optical fibre in Mauritius and Rodrigues.
