Historic District Wifi

According to hospitality experts, smartphone ownership is projected to topple 2 billion worldwide by the end of this year. This will make it even easier for people to stay connected with their family and friends — and one way that they enjoy doing that is by sharing their experiences online. These days with just a few clicks an individual can check-in, snap photos, post reviews, share their current status and invite others to join them.

In fact, 1 in 10 people leave an establishment or commercial center because of a lack of free wifi — and that number is expected to dramatically increase. It is imperative for the overall health of our local small businesses, that their customers have access to this ever growing technological link.

Thanks to generous donors, local businesses, and volunteers the Blairstown Enhancement Committee was able to establish three wifi networks throughout the Historic District’s main commercial area. Known on any cellular device as BECNet1, BECNet2, and BECNet3 these networks provide wifi — and best yet, these networks are free. That means zero tax payer money is used to establish or maintain them.

As a result of the tremendously positive response, the Blairstown Enhancement Committee is continuing to work on the logistics required to expand and strengthen the BECNet networks.
