WiFi Broadband notes:

·         The Los Angeles Public Library is providing public wireless Internet through Wi-Fi "Hot Spots" at no cost to users at the Central Library and all 71 of their branch locations.  

Anyone with a Wi-Fi enabled computer can access the service in select areas within the library facilities.

·         In October 2004, the City launched a free Wi-Fi wireless internet service at the Van Nuys Civic Center.  

The Wi-Fi mesh network provides wireless access to the Internet and is available at no charge to the public.  

A community portal page was developed and added later to deliver real time information about local events, 

City of Los Angeles Highlights, 311 City Services Directory, and other location specific information.

·         The Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and the Recreation and Parks Department (RAP) launched the Wi-Fi District in April 2005.  

JoVoGo Communications (previously known as Verge Wireless Networks) was contracted by CRA to install, operate, and support the users of the wireless network.  

The free wireless network serves mobile users in the park area with broadband Internet access leveraging content from ExperienceLA to promote culture tourism for the City, the neighborhood, and Downtown LA.

·         The Los Angeles Convention Center has developed a fee based operational model for Wi-Fi Internet access. 

The network is designed to provide Wi-Fi coverage throughout the facility for visitors and exhibitors.

·         Wi-Fi services are available throughout passenger terminals at the Los Angeles International Airport, Ontario International Airport, and are planned for the Van Nuys Airport facilities.  

LAWA Concessions recently awarded a contract to T-Mobile to build and operate these fee-for-use Wi-Fi services at the Airport Facilities.
