Downtown Escanaba businesses are getting a boost from the city’s wireless Internet capability.
Laptop users have been able to log onto the free system for almost a month.
In March, Escanaba’s downtown area went completely wireless.
Anyone can access the free service for 4 hours every 24 hours.
The Downtown Development Authority says the wireless Internet service has been well-received among businesses so far.
DDA co-director Cori Triest says that thanks to DSTech of Escanaba, it was fairly simple to set up.
It’s also possible to buy a wireless Internet plan for unlimited access in the downtown.
Triest says packages start at $15 per month.
