The Town of Summerville will soon provide free Wi-Fi internet in the historic downtown area, courtesy of Google.
Residents, businesses and visitors alike will be able to access the service.
The project is the latest part of Google's recent nationwide campaign bringing free Wi-Fi to public places. According to the press release, Google will fund the project and the Town of Summerville will administer it.
An official announcement will be made on Oct. 1 at the Town Hall courtyard. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony of sorts -- government and community members will cut colorful wire instead -- and both Mayor Bill Collins and Eric Wages, a Google data center operations manager, will provide more information on the initiative.
