WIESC project brings WiFi to Egypt

WIESC, a USAID funded project dedicated to promoting connectivity in Egypt, has recently made WiFi technology available in Luxor and Naama Bay in Sharm El Sheikh. The WIESC project is working to expand internet connectivity among Egyptian tourist cities, complementing the growth of Egypt’s dynamic technology sector.

“The WIESC project brings Egypt in line with an experience of high speed data travelling over greater distances,” said Nihal Soliman, marketing advisor for USAID. “We’re very excited to announce that our WiFi technology networks are up and running in these key Egyptian cities, allowing everyone the opportunity to experience the reliability and speed of the network.”

Luxor, Egypt’s ancient city of magnificent historical monuments, has stepped into the online world. Visitors to this top tourist destination are now able to surf the Internet, upload pictures and chat with online using WiFi technology from virtually anywhere in the city.

As Egypt’s premiere Red Sea resort, Sharm El Sheikh is capitalizing on the WiFi expansion too. Conference participants and beach-goers alike can enjoy fast, free Internet access from the boardroom to the beach and everywhere in between.

The WIESC project has succeeded in helping usher the wireless revolution in Egypt. With wireless access at cafes, fast food restaurants, airports, and in large-scale wireless areas in Luxor and Naama Bay, visitors are able to stay connected to their family, friends and colleagues while in Egypt.
