Minneapolis gives citizens free Internet access, 117 ways to get online

Minneapolis now offers citizens free Internet access from 117 “Wireless Minneapolis” hotspots under contract with USI Wireless.

Sites were selected based on “where people already gather and use computers, and places where free wireless access would encourage people to gather, including parks, plazas, schools and businesses.” Locations will be indicated with signs that say, “Free Wireless Minneapolis Hotspot Courtesy: City of Minneapolis USI Wireless.” A list of hotspots can be found at www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/wirelessminneapolis.
