How to use Jeju's free Gigabit wifi.

When you access the public wifi, you won't have to register. Instead, you will simply have to enter simple information about yourself including your nationality, gender, age, and purpose of visit.
This information will be analyzed as big data that will be used to track overall trends such as tourists' moving routine, the length of stay, and place of stay. This data will be made public and offered to Jeju residents, tourists, and enterprises.
