Free Wi-Fi coming to Tel Aviv soon
To help pay for the project, the city may allow the operators to show advertising content to users. The pilot will run for three to four months before the city plans on publishing a tender to expand the service. But the city has yet to actually develop the financial model for how to pay for the Wi-Fi service, and the cost to the city is estimated at between almost nothing, if supported by advertising, to a few million shekels a year. The city has yet to choose an Internet service provider for the project.
