"We understand that there could be thousands of visitors on some days. The (Internet connection) speed will be fine for sure. All government applications will be 'white-listed'. That means they will open at high speed," said Abdullah Al Zaffin, the director of the IT Department at Dubai Municipality. 

This isn't the first time that the Dubai Government have launched a pioneering free WiFi service, as this initiative follows the same path as the 'Smart City' project announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum – which saw Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard receiving free wireless Internet earlier this year .
