Interactive terminals will be distributed throughout the Brussels area

The i-Plus terminals have two functions: they will provide useful information (public transports, national newspaper, games, etc.) and serve as a free Wi-Fi access point.

The journalist from La vie du net fears that the hotspot might soon face saturation and the terminal be submitted to vandalism. Besides, the information offered is tricky to handle since there’s neither mouse nor keyboard and the games and video services might cause congestions. The first terminal was installed in Ixelles, but others will follow in Brussels busiest places (stations, universities…).
