Downtown Ventura Wi-Fi
Hello, hello, can you
The City of Ventura has announced that free wireless broadband service
has been launched in the public spaces of Downtown. Residents and
visitors can stay "connected" through the network, provided by the
Downtown Parking Management Program, to access the Internet, retrieve
e-mail, or surf the Web without being connected to network cables.
The network, "Downtown Ventura Wi-Fi", offers wireless broadband
service outdoors along Main Street beginning at Fir Street and
continuing to the Museum of Ventura County between Poli and Santa Clara
Service is available daily during the hours of 6am - midnight. Users
can access the service for a total of one hour, to assure use by the
maximum number of persons at any given time. No special settings, user
names or passwords are required.
The Downtown Parking Management Program's network structure is being
utilized to serve the public with free Wi-Fi service. "Free wireless
internet connections help to promote community by attracting people and
business to Downtown," said Mayor Bill Fulton. "Providing this free
service to the public is an expanded function of the network that is
already in place and will help bring more customers downtown and
encourage business growth."
Locate the network icon on your wireless device to connect. Users must
agree to accept the Terms and Conditions of use before connecting; the
agreement also identifies and warns users of the potential security
risks associated with the use of a non-secure public network.
