ImOn Communications announced today that it is launching a free Wi-Fi service in the Iowa City Ped Mall. The network will cover the Ped Mall area between S. Clinton Street and S. Linn Street. This project is a joint venture between ImOn Communications and the Iowa City Downtown District.
“ImOn's ability to upgrade our current system and deliver lighting fast speeds is really critical to Downtown vibrancy,” stated Nancy Bird, Executive Director of the Iowa City Downtown District. “Their support of the Ped Mall free public Wi-Fi will give a huge lift to our local employee and student base who enjoys working outside on beautiful days, as well as those looking to connect for special cultural events.”
The ImOn free Ped Mall Wi-Fi network is a commercial grade, state-of-the-art network, which utilizes a series of access points located throughout the Ped Mall area that are connected to ImOn’s high-speed 10 gigabit fiber network. The network will also use advanced technology that has the ability to adapt and optimize based on environmental factors, along with using a 5GHz centric approach, to provide increased reliability and better coverage in the Ped Mall area.
“ImOn Communications is proud to partner with the Iowa City Downtown District to bring free, ultra-fast Wi-Fi service to the visitors of the Iowa City Ped Mall,” said Greg Crosby, VP/GM of the Iowa City/Coralville Business Market. “This is an excellent example of how partnerships can be formed to provide valuable services to our community. With thousands of people visiting the Ped Mall each year, having reliable, high-speed Internet will only add to the patron’s overall experience.”
The new ImOn free public Ped Mall Wi-Fi network will be able to handle hundreds of simultaneous users, and will be covered by 24/7/365 local support. The general public will receive 2 hours of free access daily to the Wi-Fi network, while ImOn Internet customers will have unlimited daily access.
ImOn has partnered with Ovation Networks of Cedar Rapids for the installation and maintenance of the Iowa City Ped Mall Wi-Fi network.
ImOn also offers free public Wi-Fi service in downtown Cedar Rapids, McGrath Amphitheatre, NewBo City Market, Cedar Rapids Ice Arena, and all public parks in Hiawatha.
