Consolidated Communications and City of Roseville Partnership Brings Free Wireless Internet to Downtown Visitors
March 16, 2015 – In time for event season, visitors to the area around the Vernon Street Town Square in Downtown Roseville will now be able to connect to the internet via a free wireless network thanks to a partnership between the City of Roseville and Consolidated Communications. The free Wi-Fi service is available along Vernon Street between Taylor Street and Lincoln Street.
The Vernon Street Town Square has attracted more than 100,000 visitors since it opened in August 2013, hosting a variety of events including concerts, festivals, farmers markets, wine tastings, yoga classes and children’s story time.
"The Town Square is an important element of our downtown revitalization efforts," said Roseville City Manager Ray Kerridge. "Having free Wi-Fi is a civic amenity that we’re pleased to be able to offer through this partnership with Consolidated Communications.”
The free network allows our residents, businesses and visitors an easier and faster way to engage with the City digitally,” said Roseville Chief Information Officer Hong Sae.
“We are proud to partner with the City of Roseville to bring free Wi-Fi to Downtown visitors,” said Gabe Waggoner, vice president of operations for Consolidated Communications. “Giving back to the communities we serve, and where our employees live and work is a strong tradition for our company. And, with our offices just a block from the Town Square; this was a natural fit for us.”
Consolidated Communications (CCI) provides broadband communications solutions to residential and businesses customers locally in the greater Sacramento region and nationwide in 11 states.
