Kuala Lumpur mandates WiFi in all restaurants and bars
The New Straits Times reports that the law, passed yesterday, will make it mandatory for restaurants, cafes, pubs, bars, and clubs larger than 120 square meters in area to offer wireless Internet services free of charge, or for a reasonable fee. Kuala Lumpur's city council intends to extend the requirement to public food courts, or hawker centers, later in the year.
While the law will certainly cement Kuala Lumpur's reputation as one of the most connected cities in Southeast Asia, one has to wonder how the proliferation of WiFi will affect the dining experience, especially for travelers. It'd be a shame to be distracted from Malaysia's mind-blowing cuisine by email and Facebook.
