Ushuaia, a key port for Southern Cone and Antarctica cruises, has implemented free Wi-Fi.

Connection sites are the customs building, the catamaran building and the port's central administration office.

The new service is part of Argentina's 'Digital Country' program via the Ministry of Modernization in cooperation with the Ministry of Transportation and the General Administration of Ports S.E. 

In future, free Wi-Fi will become available at the Port of Buenos Aires and Puerto Madryn, benefiting the many cruise passengers who travel through the country.

'Today the southernmost port of Argentina is driving improvements for the cruise industry and Antarctic cruising. That the cruise ports are connected free of charge and free Wi-Fi is available for the public is a great step forward for the tourism sector but also for port logistics,' said Gonzalo Mórtola, comptroller of the General Administration of Ports S.E.
