The Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation today announced a partnership with Google to add free Wi-Fi access for six additional City of Charleston public parks including Colonial Lake, Corrine Jones, Harmon Field, Hampton Park, Mitchell Playground, and Magnolia Park & Garden. The public can now access free Wi-Fi at nine city parks.
Google’s support for Wi-Fi in local public gathering places began in 2012 with the installation of Wi-Fi at Marion Square in Downtown Charleston.
“We’re delighted to be able to expand our investment in this impactful community service in partnership with the Charleston Digital Corridor,” said Lilyn Hester, Google Head of Southeast Public Affairs. “Free Wi-Fi in Charleston’s public parks is a key ingredient in promoting community access to the internet and demonstrates harleston’s ever-growing reputation as a technology hub in the region.”
Since 2009, Google has given more than $2 million to nonprofits and schools in South Carolina. Google has donated more than $450,000 for free Wi-Fi networks in Goose Creek, Moncks Corner ballfield, downtown Summerville, Cypress Gardens, Charleston’s Waterfront Park, Marion Square, and White Point Garden.
