Free, outdoor Wi-Fi will be available in a band along Kenosha’s Lake Michigan shoreline around Memorial Day.
Service will first be available in the area by the City of Kenosha’s Public Museum campus, and will spread from Carthage College at the north to Kemper Center at the south, and west to Sheridan Road, encompassing the Downtown Kenosha area. Technical considerations will determine the actual build out schedule, but it should move very quickly.
The goal of the free, outdoor Wi-Fi service is economic development, education and public safety.
The service, which will operate under the brand DKIWIFI (Downtown Kenosha Incorporated Wi-Fi), is being developed by a consortium led by the County of Kenosha, with financial sponsorship from Carthage College, Gateway Technical College, Kenosha Area Business Alliance and the Kenosha News.
