4-H Fairgrounds home to latest community WiFi launch

Boone REMC is providing free community WiFi at the Boone County 4-H Fairgrounds in Lebanon. The service is to help connect the community. It will also help facilitate the technology needed to conduct the annual meeting on April 17th.

The new program, called “Boone Cooperative Advantage Connect,” now has five hotspots, one at the Lebanon office, one in Anson Acres Park and three at the fairgrounds. More locations will be added soon in Whitestown and Zionsville. 

Anyone can drive to a hotspot and connect for free. The community can expect better speeds the closer they are to the antennas, and there is no limit to the data used.

 “We will be registering members for the drive thru annual meeting, and this new technology will help streamline the process,” Bill Conley, Boone REMC President & CEO, said. “This is another location to benefit the community while they are accessing one of the many benefits of living in Boone County.”

The sites will remain as long as the devices remain functional and Boone REMC has permission from the community to continue providing the service. For a list of precautionary measures and specific connection instructions, log on to https://www.bremc.com/bca-community-wifi/.
