Through Continental Romania's initiative, Timisoara City Hall will have access to Orange's City analytics platform through which the municipality will be able to access the necessary information useful in managing the flow of tourists in Timisoara.

"Continental Free Wi-Fi is an initiative that brings Timisoara close to any place in the world, in a quick and simple way, at the touch of a button. Through this step, we support intelligent technology solutions that address municipal needs and challenges such as tourism, community, education, start-up ecosystems and public administration," said Christian von Albrichsfeld, general manager of Continental Romania.

Free internet access is available in Victoriei Square, Unirii Square and Freedom Square. The partnership between Continental, Orange and the local authorities has a three-years period.
"Smart city is a concept we believe in for the future, and the collaboration with Timisoara City Hall and Continental Romania shows interest in integrated solutions that are used for the benefit of the entire community," said Liudmila Climoc, Chief Executive Officer at Orange Romania. "The smart smart city platform is dynamic, adapting to changing citizens′ needs, and the open data structure allows for the inclusion of other proposed start-ups and developers in the project, starting from data already collected for this city."
The aim of the project is to increase the access of the general public to the benefits of smart city solutions at the level of Timisoara Municipality.
