[ARCHIVED] Schenectady - Deploys Public WiFi in Downtown


June 20th is known as World Wi-Fi day - a global initiative to recognize the 4 billion people around the world without internet access and help bridge the digital divide. Internet access today is as much of a necessity as telephone service was in years past. Here in Schenectady, as part of the Union Street reconstruction we have installed Wi-Fi access points that allow us to control lighting and other sensors to monitor devices as well as provide a small scale Public Wi-Fi deployment. This deployment gives us the ability to connect businesses and residents in a 4 or 5 block area and look at the values for further deployment. Residents who may not have the current ability for internet access will be able to connect and browse for needed content.

For more information on World WiFi day, please visit World WiFi Day’s Website

This announcement comes in coordination with the announcement of a Downtown Schenectady trolley that will help citizens access more of downtown and Transfinder’s new cityfinder app that will help people connect with the businesses in Schenectady.
