City of Carbondale Introduces Free Wi-Fi Downtown

CARBONDALE – The City of Carbondale is excited to introduce free Wi-Fi to residents and visitors in downtown Carbondale.

Wi-Fi is available along Illinois Avenue between the Town Square Pavilion and Friendship Plaza. To connect your handheld device, go to settings, Wi-Fi and select the “City of Carbondale Free Wi-Fi” network. No password is required.

Economic Development Director Steven Mitchell says the city is excited to be able to offer this service to downtown visitors. Mitchell noted that while the city doesn’t expect free Wi-Fi to draw new businesses and growth on its own, it acts as a public amenity for residents and students, supporting greater activity.
