Town Hall Fined for Providing Free Wi-fi

Wed 14th Sep 2011

Earlier today a Spanish Court ruled that local authorities can no longer provide a free wi-fi service in public buildings, and that they must pay to register themselves as internet providers if they choose to do so.

Town Halls who decide to offer this service will be obliged to pay the required fee to the Telecommunications Market Commission to provide the service, the court confirmed in a statement. Even when available, the service will only be free in limited and specific circumstances such as inside libraries or cultural centres.

The court upheld a 300,000-euro penalty imposed upon Malaga town hall by the commission due to their allowing the public to have free Wi-Fi access without them notifying regulators.
