University to Provide Free Wireless Internet AccessCLEVELAND
Case Western Reserve University has opened up more than 1,230 wireless access points this month, providing free campus-based wireless Internet access to faculty, students, staff and visitors. The move is the first phase of a plan named OneCleveland to blanket Cleveland with free wireless Internet access.
“The network we are designing is a way for Case to reach out to the community and connect the university and Greater Cleveland into one cohesive whole,” according to Case chief information officer Lev Gonick.
Tim Mueller, chief development officer for the city of Cleveland, praised the new effort and said the city understands how the growing power of wireless provides its citizens with enormous opportunities.
“The vision of OneCleveland, to connect, enable and transform our city through leveraging what is possible when we are all connected is a message that rings true for all of Cleveland,” Mueller says.
