Split Becomes City with Fastest Public Wi-Fi in Europe

Daniela Rogulj

Thanks to the partnership of the City of Split and the Croatian (Osijek) company MediaKing, a free Wi-Fi network was released Friday on the Split Riva. In the coming days, other popular areas of Split will too be covered, reports Dalmacija Danas and the City of Split.

Namely, the project includes the most attractive public areas in the city of Split – the East and West Coast, Riva, Marmontova, and the entire Bačvice, including the beach and all catering facilities.

As we have learned from Darko Kraljević, a representative of MediaKing, this is the first implementation of an advanced and innovative solution of the MediaKing Smart Wi-Fi in public urban areas, after the same solution was successfully implemented in a complete public transport fleet in Osijek, Split, and Dubrovnik. The biggest advantage of this home solution is the ability to simultaneously connect a large number of users while maintaining a stable and fast Internet connection. Users of the MediaKing Smart Wi-Fi system have already been able to test its quality at the Mall of Split shopping center, which has been using this system for several months. Besides being the largest mall in the region, it is also the mall with the fastest Wi-Fi in Europe.

Thus, this makes Split the city with the fastest public Wi-Fi network in Europe. For all users, this service is free of charge, and the network itself does not ask for any password or give time restrictions. 

Thanks to the efforts of Krešimir Budiša, advisor to mayor Andro Krstulović Opara for EU Funds and Development, Split has become the first city in the world to introduce MediaKing Smart Wi-Fi, which is why the entire implementation for the City of Split will be free of charge. The city will only pay a symbolic amount of system maintenance.

MediaKing is a Croatian company engaged in the implementation of an advanced and innovative Smart Wi-Fi solution for large companies, business centers and malls, public institutions, public and private transportation (trams, buses, ferries, etc.) and places and surfaces that need a large number of concurrent connections to quality and secure Wi-Fi.
