ConnectBoulder Free Public Wi-Fi Usage

Definition

This page shows the number of guest connections to the city's ConnectBoulder free public Wi-Fi service. For the Boulder Public Library Main Library, guest connections on both ConnectBoulder and BLDG61 networks are included. This page only shows 'true' connections to the city Wi-Fi; connections with 0 MB of traffic in and out of the network are automatically excluded.

Target

Maintain or increase ConnectBoulder free public Wi-Fi connections.

Significance

Free public Wi-Fi has the potential to provide economic opportunity, intensify innovation, provide new avenues for resident engagement in local decision-making, reduce carbon footprints and improve quality of life for Boulder residents and visitors.

Trend

Since the city began deploying Wi-Fi in approximately 2003, it has added an average of 12 to 15 access points each year. As the demand for coverage increases and technology makes it possible for network communication needs to be met without wires, the city expects continued increases in the number of access points, particularly as new outdoor Wi-Fi services are added.  The rate of increase will be determined by the financial resources made available to expand our wireless networks in the future, as well as potential changes to local regulations that currently limit where outdoor wireless access points can be mounted.  Visit the ConnectBoulder program page for more information on plans for expansion.
