Medvedev signs order banning anonymous Wi-Fi

Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed an order banning anonymous access to the Internet in restaurants, metro, parks and other places offering Wi-Fi connections, the government reports on its website.

The document reads communication operators will be responsible for identifying users. Access to the Internet will be possible upon registration, where a user will have to give the full name "confirmed by an ID."

Besides, hardware is to be identified, too.
