Municipal Wi Fi network operator, Gowex says that it has expanded its coverage in the Spanish city of Madrid to an additional six city squares.
The network expansion is in cooperation with the Madrid City Council, and are in addition to the project they jointly launched last year.
Around a million users browse in Madrid through the different Wi-Fi networks handled by Gowex. They connect, on average, more than 25 minutes a day and mostly in the evening between 7pm-8pm. Gowex also highlight that both locals and tourists prefer to connect during working days and they use, 9 out of 10 times, mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and consoles to connect.
This behavior is reflected in the areas where users more often connect, mostly located in the Plaza Mayor (29.65%) and the Plaza Callao (21.18%), walking and "hangout" areas where people use the free WiFi to connect mainly to social networks or to check the email.
