Mayor Buckhorn announces free Wi-Fi in Tampa

Posted: Updated:

Need to do business in downtown Tampa? The mayor has your Wi-Fi covered.

On Tuesday, Mayor Bob Buckhorn announced seven new public Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the City of Tampa offices.

"From Wi-Fi to the Accela online permitting system, we're investing in becoming a more business-friendly and user-friendly city. These hotspots are providing a real service for our customers," said Mayor Bob Buckhorn. "When citizens come down to visit City Hall or file a permit, I want them to know that they can continue to do business."

The public can utilize the City's Wi-Fi at the following locations: the lobby of the Tampa Municipal Office Building, City Council Chambers, City Council lobby, the lobby of the Tampa Police Department, Development Services Center lobby, Development Services Center conference room, and the lobby of the Solid Waste offices.

To access the City of Tampa Internet in the select areas, users will search for "COT Public WiFi" and must agree to the basic terms of use.

The Technology and Innovation Department will continue to explore the feasibility of creating additional hotspots in the City's recreation centers and parks.
