The city of Chattanooga will provide free wi-fi in city-owned buildings and spaces, as part of a two-phase plan.
The plan's first phase is underway and includes the re-wiring of city-owned public buildings:
All 18 Youth & Family Development centers
Head Start centers
Neighborhood Fire Halls
Development Resource Center
In the second phase, the city will begin to connect city-owned public spaces, such as parks, for wireless access.
The city is also kicking off a month-long naming contest for the system Wednesday. Those interested can go to the city's website and submit their idea for a name for the wireless system.
Entries will be narrowed down to five; the public will then vote and select a winner.
“The City owns a lot of public spaces and they are used in a variety of different ways by individuals across our community,” said Mayor Andy Berke. "We want to ensure our citizens have more access to the internet – one way we can do that is by utilizing the places our citizens already visit and open them up for even more use.”
