Medellin makes progress in its quest to become a smart city

In the Columbian city of Medellin, around 700,000 inhabitants don’t have Internet access. Fortunately, one important element of the city’s plan to become a smart city is to provide internet access to every one of its citizens.

In order to achieve this goal, Ana Isabel Palacios Cardona, director of the renewed program, ‘Medellin Digital’, stated that they plan to create more public spaces with free internet access, such as schools, parks, libraries, and business centers.

The government hopes to have 544 access points in service by 2015.
