Kazakhstan railroad stations will get Wi-Fi by autumn 2012, Kazakhstan Minister of Transport and Communications Askar Zhumagaliyev wrote in his Twitter. “Karaganda and Aktobe railroad stations will get Wi-Fi by the end of Q3,” the Minister wrote. Besides, he added that Wi-Fi will be available at the stations in Kyzylorda, Shymkent, Taraz, Atyrau, Mangyshlak, Pavlodar, Kostanay, Kokshetau and Semey by the end of 2012. According to Zhumagaliyev the work on setting up Wi-Fi Internet access hubs at the railroad stations in other major cities and villages will start in 2013. “13 major railroad stations in Astana, Almaty and 12 oblast centers (large cities) offer Internet access already,” the Minister wrote. The stations have also been equipped with video surveillance systems. The Minister also said that 15 Kazakhstan airports had already got Wi-Fi. Earlier Kazakhstan Ministry of Transport and Communication issued a press-release about its intention to make the country’s railroad stations Wi-Fi hubs. The Ministry also reported that all the railroad stations will be divided into classes. A special commission will decide on the class of every station based on the volume of passengers flow and its technical equipment. High-class railroad stations will be additionally equipped with Wi-Fi, video surveillance systems, carry-on luggage lockers, exchange points, cash machines, post offices and telegraphs, baby-care rooms and service-centers.
