The signal coverage in the downtown area forms the “circle” Jadranski trg – Korzo – Koblerov trg - Ulica Ignacija Henckea – Riva – Splitska ulica – Jadranski trg - Žabica bus terminal - Ulica Ante Starčevića. The part of Rijeka breakwater near the passenger terminal is also covered by the signal. The area covered by free wireless Internet at Trsat includes the area from the Trsat Castle and the Marian Sanctuary of Trsat to the Youth Sports Hall.
There are overall 69 access points, out of which 35 are situated in 14 different locations on Korzo, while 17 are placed in three different locations in Trsat and 5 at the Kantrida swimming pools, 6 at the Centre Zamet, 2 at the Athletic Hall Kantrida, 1 at the cinema "Art-kino Croatia" and 3 at the Astronomy Centre Rijeka.
In this way, the maximum number of users who can simultaneously use free Internet access has increased to 4,000.
The signal strength in the zone of coverage is up to 50 dB, which, together with the size of the zone coverage, makes this network the highest quality Wi-Fi zone in Croatia.
The access to the Internet is enabled through the IT infrastructure of the City of Rijeka.
The speed of the wireless Internet access is up to 10 Mbits synchronous.
Limits imposed by the system are the following:
- Disabled use of P2P programme
- Disabled access to the Internet pages generally considered as objectionable and non-affirmative
- Size of data allowed for transfer over HTTP limited to 10 MB
- Disabled use of FTP
- Disabled use of VPN
- Total size of e-mail limited to 3 MB
The project makes use of Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) technology, i.e. wireless computer network based on IEEE 802.11 specifications that prescribe standards of wireless communication, developed by the workgroup of the 11th international body IEEE 802. Wi-Fi is a trademark of Wi-Fi Alliance that prescribes standards and issues certificates for all WI-Fi devices.
All that is necessary to access the Internet by Wi-Fi technology is a card that is today a component of almost every portable computer, being the simplest contemporary form of wireless connection. Besides portable computers, Wi-Fi cards are already a component part of mobile telephones of the later generation, as well as play-stations, so that, for example, Playstation 3 has a built-in Wi-Fi card.
