WiFi launch in Benissa
As Jorge Ivars, mayor of the area, explained the agreement signed between the City and Closeness, will provide 95% of its population, the access to high quality network, both for private and professional uses and at a very competitive price.
The project will be developed in three phases. In the first place, the nodes will be installed that will allow Closeness to have coverage in several initial points in the municipal area, like Old seminary and Pedramala. The next step will be to give free access to our service in several public spaces: red farm area, gazebo area, sports area, and Fustera area. At these points people can connect to the internet through their different devices (laptops, phones, tablets, etc ..). Finally, the services will be provided at all professional and residential levels, with special emphasis on the area of the polygon, coastal zone and rural area.
In addition, it is planned that two free access points will be installed both in the Library and in the Casal Jove soon, during the time they remain open.
Economic and employment promotion
The installation works will be executed, mostly by local installers, which will encourage employment in the municipality. Both local businesses and individuals may act as collaborators in the commercialization of new subscriber registrations, thereby receiving a bonus for each installation.
The companies located in the Benissa Industrial Estate will also improve their productivity by having better Internet connectivity at a lower cost.
It is foreseen that several informative meetings will be held on the following dates of the month of March:
Tuesday 5: Estate administrators and presidents -16.30 pm in the University Seminar.
Tuesday 5: Installers and commercial agents – 7:00 pm at the University Seminar.
Thursday 7: Small businesses and commercial agents – 4 pm at the Cultural Bar.
