This accomplishment highlights the emirate's steadfast adherence to important values like transparency, creativity, inclusion, and sustainability, reaffirming its commitment to promoting the development of smart cities.

Impact on Smart City Development

The launch of free Wi-Fi aligns with the broader vision of transforming Abu Dhabi into a smart city. This strategic move not only enhances the overall experience for residents and tourists but also contributes to the city's global recognition in the realm of smart urban planning. The commitment to innovation and connectivity is evident in the comprehensive approach taken by the DMT, reflecting a proactive stance in shaping a digitally empowered and interconnected community.

As Abu Dhabi continues to prioritise smart city initiatives, the introduction of free Wi-Fi across key locations is a significant step towards fostering a more connected and technologically advanced urban environment.
