Macau residents and tourists now have free wireless Internet access at selected locations in the city. Macau’s Bureau of Telecommunications Regulation said people with Wi-Fi supported equipment will be able to wirelessly connect to the internet through the "WiFi GO" service. The service is provided at selected locations such as government premises, public facilities and tourist attractions. The bureau also said it plans to establish another 49 Wi-Fi hotspots in the city by the end of this year. A recently-released report from International Telecommunications Union (ITU) said Macau has the cheapest broadband service in the world, with the fee being just 0.3% of a citizen’s average monthly income in 2009. M2M cites the ITU report as saying that this special administrative region of China had a broadband penetration rate of 23.42% last year.
