Alberta SouthWest Public WiFi Project

[this post is from Trever Hollihan, a Nerd in Lethbridge, Alberta]
We just uploaded new photos to the Facebook fan page about our FREE Public WiFi Project with Alberta SouthWest. You can see the map below, which shows the region and how many towns are involved (Current and not installed). You an also see the Splash Page that Chris Rose (a Nerd in St. Johns, Newfoundland) created.
Everyone is very excited about this project! Here is a video interview with the Town of nanton talking about this project featured on Alberta Primetime.
I’ve already quoted the Arena, Pool and Curling Rink for the Town of Nanton.
These radios have been very, very popular, and used very often!

You can see the Meraki WiFi unit on the side of the building (Town of Stavely)

I’ve had multiple towns starting to contact me about putting this in by themselves without having Alberta SouthWest involved, and I’m hoping they want to move forward soon. Some have already stated when the funding is there, it’s off to the races!
We will be moving forward with signage and spreading the word as soon as the last few towns are ready to go to the next step in the plan that we have devised with Alberta SouthWest.
I’m just itching to share more good news with you and it’s HUGE GOOD NEWS but, alas, it must wait. Rest assured,  we’ll share it the moment we can!
