A wireless Internet hotspot is a site that offers public Internet access over a wireless local area network (WLAN) through the use of a router connected to an Internet service provider. Public internet Hotspots typically use Wi-Fi technology.

This tag is for indicating that a map feature such as a cafe, shop, restaurant, etc. offers internet access to the public, either as a paid service or for free.

As an example, campsites offering wireless internet access should be tagged primarily as tourism=camp_site and additionally internet_access=wlan.

See internet_access=* for more information.

How to map

  • Add the tag internet_access=wlan to a feature such as an internet cafe, shop, restaurant, library, campsite, hotel or other location that offers public wireless internet access.

Additional tags:

  • Add the tag internet_access:fee=yes/no/customers if it is know whether payment or purchase is required.
  • internet_access:operator=* may be added to specify the network operator of the internet service
  • internet_access:ssid=* - may be added to specify the network name ("ssid"). This ID should be the value of the tag.
