City picking partners for downtown WiFi pilot

Published on

Sarnia said it will set up an online application this week to pick qualified partners for its downtown WiFi pilot.

Those selected will work with the city to provide free public WiFi in the downtown core.

The proposal calls for eight to 10 indoor installations at businesses or with other partners. Another four to five outdoor installations will be streets and parks, and one or two on busses or transit shelters, said Mark Dillon, corporate manager of information technology.

The city hopes to select its WiFi partners by the end of the month based on location, foot traffic, hours of operation and technical considerations.
