The nDanville network has installed public Wi-Fi connection on Main Street in the River District.
An event was held today to celebrate the addition of four hotspot locations on the 300, 400, and 500 blocks of Main Street to provide outdoor Wi-Fi connections. The connection is offered by the City of Danville and is free to the public. It is not intended to replace existing commercial or residential internet connections.
“nDanville was launched primarily to stimulate economic development in Danville,” said Joe King, City Manager. “Providing free public Wi-Fi in the River District is part of that strategy. This Main Street Wi-Fi deployment is just the first of many to come.”
River District Wi-Fi will be available at the Main Street Plaza this summer, and any future expansions will be planned as streetscape projects are developed. The Main Streetscape project and the free public Wi-Fi are amenities that will attract people to the River District and help the businesses there.
“Public improvements are an important aspect of downtown development,” said Corrie Teague, project manager for the Office of Economic Development. “Our investment in public projects has resulted in over $86 million of private investment in the River District since 2006.”
