Indianapolis' Fountain Square District becomes Largest Free Wi-Fi Zone in Indiana
Posted: 12-Jul-2007 [Source: Sputnik]

[A public/private partnership has cooperated in creating Indiana's largest free Wi-Fi zone covering the Fountain Sqauare cultural and tourism district in Indianapolis.]

Indianapolis -- Indianapolis wireless provider eWireless announced an innovative public/private partnership has created the state's largest wireless Internet zone at the Fountain Square cultural and tourism district. The new Wi-Fi zone is jointly sponsored by the Fountain Square Merchants Association and the Indianapolis Local Initiatives Support Corp. (a government group), along with eWireless.

Fountain Square visitors will have free wireless access to the Internet throughout the historic neighborhood and along the path of the future cultural trail leading into the district. The wireless network is part of a service and branding program for the cultural district -- wireless users have immediate access to a calendar of community events and a directory of local attractions to increase visitor awareness of Fountain Square entertainment and shopping opportunities.

eWireless, which donated its time to design, install and manage the wireless network, chose Sputnik wireless technology for the project. "Sputnik wireless network management software lets us operate and troubleshoot the network over the Internet from a central location, a must for maintaining a large wireless zone such as Fountain Square," said Henry Kurkowski, vice president of business development at eWireless. The Fountain Square Cultural District hot zone joins other already established eWireless hot zones in Indianapolis, including Broad Ripple, Monument Circle, and the ArtsGarden.

At a June 27 "cord-cutting" ceremony inaugurating the new wireless hot zone, Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson said, "Not only will this Wi-Fi zone be a beneficial economic development tool, it will also enhance tourism in our great city by connecting visitors with all of the great things Indianapolis has to offer."

"The Fountain Square wireless network demonstrates key advantages of Sputnik's ability to provide control over branding and the Wi-Fi experience," said David LaDuke, Sputnik CEO. "Civic and business leaders demanded a public network that wouldn't break the budget to operate. Sputnik keeps operating costs low by keeping costly technician visits down."
