The technology management of the City of Mérida performs an assessment of the characteristics of the nearly 600 parks that exist in the city, in order to provide Internet service in all of them, since currently only 150 of these public spaces are connected to the World Wide Web.
The director of that municipal agency, Hernán Mujica Ruiz, explained that in general they are evaluating all the technological services in the entire city, of which some were implemented by previous administrations” so now it is time to provide a higher quality service.”
Mujica Ruiz said that in addition to incorporating new online parks, those which already have this service will be provided with mechanisms to give a better and faster connectivity, because when there are too many people connected at one point, the connection speed decreases.
“We have not yet established any goal in relation to the number of parks that will be equipped with Internet service because it will be based on economic results, diagnosis and coverage capacity for the areas that really need it,” the official continued.
He explained that currently they see important demand in the center and south of the city, so it is not ruled out that these are the areas will be considered first priority.
Mujica Ruiz added that similarly they seek greater efficiency, as Mérida is one of the municipalities with better quality of systematization in their administrative processes in all of southeast Mexico.
“Today, technology is an indispensable tool, so we are working to find tools such as mobile applications that could make municipal procedures more efficient” he concluded.
