Journalists need free phones

REPORTERS used to having free phone lines available to cover big international events were surprised by the small number of phone lines and the charged-for calls at the Incheba press centre, the TASR news agency reported.

Some journalists are missing small television monitors at their workstations to watch today's summit and record the press conferences. However, there are two large TV screens in the room.

The centre offers wireless connection to the Internet and fast LAN connection.

Chinese journalists like to use older but still frequently used phone connection through modem. Russian journalists found that Russian language keyboards were missing, but on request they were given them.
