Wireless Minnesota

Minneapolis’ “Wireless Minnesota” network covers 59 square miles of the city, making it one of the largest areas covered by wireless worldwide. To create the network, the city partnered with USI Wireless, which now offers free accounts to community sites that provide computer access to the public, technology literacy training, and/or technology support to underserved communities.  The network also includes 117 "Wireless Minneapolis" hotspots throughout the city from which anyone can access the Internet for free. Five percent of USI Wireless’ profits support a “digital inclusion fund” which since 2007 has granted a total of $400,000 to groups working to promote digital literacy and bridge the digital divide.
