Downtown now has one of the fastest free WiFi hotspots in the US! The city partnered with SmartWAVE Technologies and Ruckus Wireless to launch the "Wickedly Fast Wi-FI Network" which is available in the area bound by East St. John, Balbach Street and Viola, North 6th, and Almaden Boulevard.
The network will only cost the city a $94,000 one-time fee and $22,000 annually, the same as the previous network.
There are a few gaps in coverage right now, but those should be addressed by the end of the summer. You can click the image below to see where all of the current and planned access point locations are. Also, the Wickedly Fast WiFi webpage is over here.
