Wi-Fi comes to Plano parks

Plano, Texas, announced a public-private partnership to bring free Wi-Fi to all major city parks and recreation facilities.

Working with Time Warner Cable, Toyota and American Park Network, Plano is expanding the number of Wi-Fi hotspots to include the city’s recreations centers.  Toyota is working with American Park Network to provide additional hotspots in areas outside of the Time Warner Cable coverage area. The hotspots throughout the park system are free to all park visitors at no cost for up to an hour per day.

In addition to providing free connectivity for visitors, these new systems will also help to identify park visitation patterns, generate awareness of upcoming programs and events and promote the support of Plano’s parks.
