WILLIAMSBURG — Some of the city’s residents can get free internet on Thursday, April 22.
The City of Williamsburg announced the expansion of its “Free Wireless Internet Pilot Program,” which allows any city resident to receive a router.
“The City of Williamsburg launched a six-month pilot program that provides free broadband service to any City residents who wants it,” according to the city’s Facebook post. “A router, provided by the City, is the only equipment necessary.”
Williamsburg has 75 routers available to distribute. The routers are available on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in receiving one of these free routers, you can fill out a form by clicking here.
“Once the router is plugged into power, Wifi-enabled devices can connect,” according to the City of Williamsburg’s website.
Those who pick up the free router can receive six months of internet service using up to 25 GB per month. However, the city website notes using “streaming services” while connected to the router is not recommended.
Those who are interested in receiving a router can pick up the router on at the city’s Municipal Building, 401 Lafayette St. on Thursday, April 22 from 1-5 p.m.
For more information or questions about the program, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 757-905-6277.
