Boone REMC offers free community WIFI

Boone REMC is providing free community WIFI at the Anson Acres in Whitestown. The service is to help connect the community as the pandemic continues and more families are working or learning remotely. The new program, called “Boone Cooperative Advantage Connect,” now has two hotspots, one at the Lebanon office and one in Anson Acres. More locations will be added soon.

 

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

 

 “During these challenging times, we recognize that connection to family, friends, work and school are more important than ever,” Bill Conley, Boone REMC CEO, said. “We encourage the public to use precautions when connecting to any public WIFI, but now everyone can have access by simply coming to the site.”

 

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/2020/10/community-wifi/.
