Free public Wi-Fi coverage has been launched across Abu Dhabi by the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT).

The service, called 'Hala Wi-Fi', is being rolled out across the emirate, including on public buses, and in parks and beaches.

The DMT said the initiative aims to support Abu Dhabi’s smart city development and strengthen its digital infrastructure.

"We are proud to offer this service, ensuring connectivity for everyone across all locations. Abu Dhabi's global ranking at 13 out of 141 cities in the IMD Smart City Index 2023 validates our dedication to smart city development," said Mohamed Ali Al Shorafa, Chairman of DMT.

The service has been rolled out across 19 public parks in Abu Dhabi, 11 in Al Ain and 14 in Al Dhafra Region, and will soon be available at Abu Dhabi Corniche beach and Al Bateen beach.
