A bill that would require all government and other public buildings to provide WIFI (free Internet access) was presented on Monday by Knesset Science and Technology Committee chairman Kadima MK Meir Sheetrit.

He argued that large numbers of people with laptops and cellular devices visit such places daily and are forced to pay for expensive Internet services.

If WIFI were offered, they could use it instead of a cellphone portal and save money. Such a service would put the buildings at the forefront of technology, he added.
