Free Wi-Fi Goes Live in Cogswell Plaza on August 8

It all started with an idea from a local entrepreneur whose philanthropic start up wanted to raise funds to beautify a City park. On August 8, the results of that initial idea will go live when officials "flip the switch" on free City-sponsored Wi-Fi that has been installed at Cogswell Plaza. The event is open to the public and scheduled for 6 p.m. 

"I am looking forward to seeing people sit in the park during the summer in the evenings and log on or have employees at nearby companies on their laptops at lunch using the free Wi-Fi," said Mayor Greg Scharff. "This directly aligns with one of the Council's 2013 priorities – Technology and the Connected City – and is another great example of Palo Alto working across many platforms to be a leading digital city,"said Mayor Greg Scharff.
