Downtown Waterville To Soon Have Free Wireless Internet

May 10, 2018

WATERVILLE, Maine - The downtown area of a Maine city will soon have free wireless internet for all.
 
Due to a partnership between Colby College and the Central Maine Growth Council, the Waterville service is expected to go live at the end of this month. Six hotspots have been dispersed throughout the outdoors downtown district, ensuring high-speed internet at public spaces.
 
The wireless signals will be strongest outdoors and are intended for use in primarily public spaces.
 
The Central Maine Growth Council says the service is designed to support local businesses and to help attract new ones, calling it "that competitive edge.''
 
Colby College contributed the initial investment and the Central Maine Growth Council will manage the operating costs of the free internet.
