Hillsboro Now Has Free Wi-Fi Downtown

1 Comment

The City of Hillsboro now provides free Wi-Fi in the downtown area.

The new system, announced at last night’s city council meeting, is called “HiHillsboro WiFi.” That name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, but it’s free Wi-Fi so who cares?

City Manager Michael Brown presented the effort as a way to help revitalize downtown. The range is fairly extensive, as you can see below:

The network can handle 2,500 simultaneous users by the Civic Center Plaza and 500 in other spots, according to city officials. There’s one big catch: coverage isn’t 24/7. Wi-Fi is only offered between 6am and 9pm, daily.

Shute Park will get coverage by next summer, according to city officials. Hopefully more areas will be added as the city rolls out municipal fiber in the coming years.

The Best Emergency Preparedness Supplies

1 Share

Though the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the American Red Cross, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention all provide emergency-supply checklists, those lists can be intimidating in their breadth and their specificity. In reality, for the most part you can assemble an emergency kit out of stuff you’d use anyway and may already own. There’s never a bad time to prepare for a crisis by stocking up on gear and organizing it so you know exactly where it is when you need it most. We did 120 hours of research and tested nearly 100 different products to come up with 31 products that will be indispensable in case of a natural disaster—and helpful in everyday life, too.
