The City of Iowa City and ImOn Communications have announced that they have launched free Wi-Fi service on North Linn Street. The network will cover the outdoor eating area in the block between Market Street and the alley just north of Market.
This project is a joint venture between ImOn Communications and the City of Iowa City.
“ImOn's free community Wi-Fi on North Linn Street is a great amenity for this popular area,” Shannon McMahon, Iowa City Communications Coordinator, said. “Their support of the area’s free public Wi-Fi will provide Iowa City residents and visitors another option to access the Internet while visiting the local shops and restaurants.”
ImOn’s Wi-Fi utilizes access points located on North Linn Street that are connected to ImOn’s fiber network, providing increased reliability and better coverage. The Wi-Fi access is offered for up to two hours per day per user. ImOn customers can enter their account number for unlimited access.
“ImOn Communications is proud to partner with the City of Iowa City to bring free, ultra-fast Wi-Fi service to visitors on North Linn Street,” said Patrice Carroll, CEO of ImOn. “This is an excellent example of how partnerships can be formed to provide valuable services to our community.”
In Iowa City, ImOn also offers free community Wi-Fi in the Ped Mall area, Chauncey Swan Park and its adjacent parking ramp, and Riverfront Crossings Park.
