People who live or work in West Hollywood might want to review their data plans. The city is now offering free outdoor WiFi to residents and visitors alike.
“With the rapid growth of technology and the increasing demand for connectivity, the City believes that providing free outdoor public Wi-Fi is an important service that can make a significant difference in the lives of people who live, work, and visit West Hollywood,” the city said in a news release.
The free network spans the entire length of Santa Monica Boulevard within the boundaries of West Hollywood.
“Looking ahead, the City of West Hollywood, through its Information Technology and Engineering Divisions, has an active procurement to bring fiber infrastructure to Sunset Boulevard, N. Fairfax Avenue, N. La Brea Avenue, Fountain Avenue, and N. Doheny Drive, with the aim of eventually bringing free outdoor public Wi-Fi and Smart City applications to each of those locations within West Hollywood.”
To access the free network, users should select ‘WeHoWiFi’ on their mobile device and agree to the terms of service. No password is required.
Use of the network does not give the city access to your device, and it will not be used to collect any personal information.
