As part of its modernization and technological innovation strategy, the Municipality of Castro Marim has provided, since the end of 2022, a free network of Wi-Fi access points in the main centers of public life – Castro Marim ON.
The initiative results from the establishment of the convention “WiFi4EU Promotion of Internet connectivity in local communities”, between the Municipality of Castro Marim and the Executive Agency for Innovation and Networks (INEA). The municipality bears the connection costs (subscription for Internet access) and equipment maintenance and offers free high-quality wireless connectivity for a minimum period of three years.
With this initiative, the European Commission intends to promote free wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi) in public spaces throughout Europe, namely in parks, squares, public buildings, libraries, health centers and museums. Hotspots were installed in Altura (Praceta Prof. Luís Amaro, Rotunda 24 Junho and Mercado Municipal), Azinhal (Largo), Odeleite (Casa de Odeleite) and Castro Marim (Praça 1º de Maio, Revelim de St. António, West Zone, City Hall, City Library, Local Market, Casa do Sal).
On site, to access it, just look for the WiFi4EU network and click on connect, without the need to register.
