Govfresh.com reports that Minneapolis now offers citizens free Internet access from 117 â€œWireless Minneapolisâ€ hotspots.
Hotspot sites were selected based on â€œwhere people already gather and use computers, and places where free wireless access would encourage people to gather, including parks, plazas, schools and businesses.â€
Locations will be indicated with signs that say, â€œFree Wireless Minneapolis Hotspot Courtesy: City of Minneapolis USI Wireless.â€ A list of hotspots can be found here.
â€œBeing a wireless city is important, but we have to be a wireless city for everyone. These new hot spots are another benchmark in our work to bridge the digital divide and create economic and educational opportunity for everyone,â€ said, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak.
