These measures, carried out together with the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), add to the 33,516 internet access points that already exist in CDMX.

In Metrobús, stations and cabins on Line 1 of Cablebús, as well as stations on Line 2, you can connect to the internet for free.

“And in addition, we have 5 more CETRAM, which we hope to finish in the next month and a half, especially in Constitución de 1917, in Indios Verdes, in Martín Carrera, in San Lázaro and Observatorio, which will add up to at the 36 at the end of next month the CETRAMs end,” said Eduardo Clark, head of the Digital Agency for Public Innovation in CDMX.

The antivirus company Karspersky recommends that if you connect to the Internet through a public network, you use a red virtual private network (VPN) because “even if a hacker manages to position himself in the middle of the connection, the data will be completely encrypted.”

It also recommends that you activate the “Always use HTTPS” option, as this will add a layer of encryption to your connection.
