Broadband service in the Complex during the 115th Canton Fair comes in both cable and WiFi forms.

If your Internet terminal (laptop, etc.) does not support such channels (SSID Canton fair, and not Cantonfair-a, is shown during network searching), you may rent a 5.8G wireless network adapter. The network adapters have a USB interface, and cannot be used on tablets or smartphones. The deposit required for an adapter is RMB 300, which can be paid at an on-site service station. The deposit paid at the on-site service station will be fully refunded in cash after the Fair is over.
