TIFFIN, Ohio – Tiffin residents and visitors can now access free Wi-Fi at the city’s largest park: Hedges-Boyer Park.
A partnership between Tiffin and local businesses Bascom Communications has closed a deal for Southeast Tiffin Park off Coe Street.
The idea started as a way to offer free internet to sports teams as well as festival and concert goers.
The city helped finance a fiber-optic cable with Heidelberg University.
To enter, visitors simply select the Community Connect network and watch a 30-second ad to access the Internet. After that, anyone in the million-square-foot park can use the Wi-Fi.
“With this connectivity, people can FaceTime, they can share live photos with family and friends, which maybe they couldn’t have before because our service, our cellular service, is not the best on this side of the park.” – Tiffin Parks and Recreation Director Bryce Kuhn said.
City officials also said there are plans to offer free Wi-Fi at other Tiffin city parks.
