Community members needing access to high speed internet can now enjoy free Drive-Up Wi-Fi Hotspots provided by Easton Velocity, a service of Easton Utilities. “As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we’ve been working diligently to implement this offering in hopes we can help those in our community who may need internet service,” said Ted L. Book, Director of Easton Velocity.
Currently, the Wi-Fi Hotspots are temporarily available at:
- Talbottown Shopping Center parking lot (closest to Washington and Harrison Streets)
- Idlewild Park parking lot (near basketball courts)
- Moton Park parking lot (closest to park entrance)
- Library parking lot (closest to Federal Street)
The name of the free wireless network is EU-Public and there is no password required or limit on time usage. “With the increase in students participating in distance learning and employers requiring people to work remotely, we wanted to provide a safe place for anyone to connect while maintaining the recommended social distancing,” stated John J. Horner, COO for Easton Utilities.
