Wi-Fi Map

Ventspils has set up the largest public Wi-Fi network in the country, "Ventspils-Guest".

It covers all schools, Ventspils University College, municipal buildings, ferry and bus terminals, as well as the principal recreational areas, in total 27.

Taking into account that Wi-Fi connections are used by nearly all smartphones and that the number of their users rapidly increases, the area of access to Wi-Fi connections has been expanded, including such popular tourist attractions as the Sailor Cow located at the Southern Breakwater and the Traveler Cow situated in Ostas Street. By the "CowParade Ventspils 2012" Opening Ceremony on June 30, the Wi-Fi area will cover also the Flower Cow grazing in Sarkanmuiza meadow. Thus, visitors are now provided free access to the tourist-friendly website of the Virtual Embassy of Ventspils, www.visitventspils.com, which has been specially adapted for cell phones and PDAs.

"Ventspils-Guest" has the maximum base station capacity of the Wi-Fi network in Ventspils is 20 Mbps (megabits per second). However, taking into account the limitations of Wi-Fi technology, the network does not allow a user to stream video and audio content or use torrents and other similar file sharing programs. Nevertheless, "Ventspils-Guest" ensures web browsing, GPS data transmission and other functions offered by modern smartphones.

Public wireless internet is available 24/7 and does not require a password. The network does not have any data or time restrictions.
