The City of South Bend is expanding the South Bend Open Wi-Fi network.
There are more than 30 new sites with an estimated 129 new access points to provide free, publicly accessible internet in neighborhoods throughout the City.
Earlier in the year, the Department of Innovation & Technology conducted a campaign inviting residents to nominate sites in their neighborhood for expanded Open Wi-Fi. 141 resident nominations were received. Sites were selected based on cost, existing infrastructure, and potential impact.
The new South Bend Open Wi-Fi sites include parks, business corridors, partnered community-based organizations, and fire stations adjacent to residential areas and Transpo stops. Wireless access points will be installed throughout this year and next.
