The City of Macon now has free high-speed Wifi available to the public!
The new downtown hotspot is on Poplar Street between Rosa Taylor Park and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.The service is provided by Wifi Macon, a project of MGA’s School of Computing, in partnership with Cox Communications and Macon-Bibb County.
The project was funded by a $39,848 Downtown Challenge grant from the Community Foundation of Central Georgia.
“Cox is proud to partner with Middle Georgia State University to bring this great service to Poplar Street,” said Bonnie Lopez-Crowe, market vice president for Cox Middle Georgia. “Public-private partnerships like these demonstrate our commitment to bringing cutting-edge technology to our community in new and innovative ways creating Smart City solutions for Macon-Bibb and its residents.”
The free Wifi arrives just in time for the annual Christmas Light display that runs along Poplar Street during the holidays. Now sending that selfie or posting that memory to social media will be a breeze.
