This is in contrast to the 2012 Summer Games in London, where reporters were charged $150 to $240 for the WiFi connectivity needed to do their jobs, Dmitry Chernyshenko said.
At Sochi, he said, journalists will have free 10-megabit WiFi Internet access, provided by Russian communications company Rostelecom, at the media center and all the major event venues.
"This will support a maximally open approach to coverage of the Olympic and Paralympic Games," Chernyshenko told RIA Novosti.
For those needing faster Internet speeds, like photographers who want to send high-resolution pictures to editing desks, there will be an option to pay for a speed upgrade, organizers said.
The Sochi games begin Feb. 7, 2014.
