Crowd Gathers for Wireless Workday
We had an amazing turnout for Get Connected: Wireless Workday in the Park on Nov. 10. Emplolyees from local bsinesses, students of all ages, news media and many more gathered in Hampton Park for lunchtime food trucks and a ceremonial “cord cutting” to celebrate the addition of free Wi-Fi in four more Charleston city parks.
Thanks to a $30,000 donation from The Speedwell Foundation, the Charleston Parks Conservancy worked with the Charleston Digital Corridor to add wireless access to Hampton Park, Corrine Jones Park, Magnolia Park and Community Garden and Mitchell Playground. Wi-Fi is already available in Waterfront Park and Marion Square thanks to the Charleston Digital Corridor and Google. Charleston Free Wi-Fi was also added to Governor’s Park on Daniel Island through an agreement between Home Telecom and the Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation.
Big thanks to food trucks Ted’s Butcherblock, Zombie Bob’s Pizza and Auto-Banh plus King of Pops for coming out to provide lunch options.
