Wi-Fi for Tourists
With the vision and leadership of one local businessman Stevenson now boasts a Wi-Fi network that blankets the entire downtown area. This service is free and guests may log in for up to one hour at a time. Each time someone logs in they are directed to a "Welcome to Stevenson" page that links to local lodging and dining establishments.
The lessons learned from this project are that if one person or a group decides to do something there are ways to get it done without spending a lot of money. Taking things one step at a time is not beyond the abilities of a small group.
In the future, customized websites could be developed for each Wi-Fi coverage area featuring tourist information and ads for the businesses in that area. This could generate additional revenue needed to pay for equipment upgrades.For More Information:
