Project Overview is a wireless 802.11b network, allowing a user to access the Internet from anywhere within the coverage area, and performing the same tasks that one might engage in plugged into the Internet from home or the office. Checking e-mail, doing research and chatting with co-workers become possible while sitting outside at area businesses for lunch or dinner, or a special event in the Downtown Community Plaza.

This wireless Internet service is free of charge and relatively unrestricted. Anyone who wants to use it may, as long as they have purchased the appropriate wireless hardware and read our acceptable use policy.

Internet services, network hardware, technical support and design support for the project has been donated free of charge by the Community Partners for the project.
