Moscow is Among the Top Three World Leaders in the Number of Free Wi-Fi Access Points

Moscow is among the  world leaders in the number of free Wi-Fi access points -  the Russian capital overtook New York, London and Tokyo and entered the top three largest megacities, the Moscow City Hall website reports, citing a study conducted by the consulting company PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC).

      In 2018, Moscow almost doubled the number of publicly accessible Wi-Fi points  and approached Seoul, which ranks second, the report said. The leader is Singapore. More than 3 thousand Internet access points were created inside the Garden Ring and the Third Ring Road, more than 2 thousand in libraries, more than 1 thousand in parks, more than 8 thousand in dormitories, and about 400 museums, the study says. 

      In addition, Moscow ranked first in terms of the area of ​​green natural and recreational facilities per capita. About 90% of Muscovites live within walking distance from such territories. The top three leaders in terms of parks besides Moscow are Hong Kong and Berlin. 

      More than 60% of Moscow residents live within a radius of 500 meters from cultural and leisure facilities, which puts the city in fifth place among the largest megacities in the world, experts emphasize. Berlin, Tokyo, London and New York are placed in the ranking above Moscow. In terms of the total length of bike paths on the territory of the city, Moscow ranks 11th, but from 2011 to 2018 their length has grown ninefold.
