Mayor Mike Purzycki announced that beginning Tuesday, April 21, five FREE WiFi sites will be available around Wilmington to assist students with their studies in the era of COVID-19. Wilmington has partnered with WhyFly, a City-based technology company, and received permission from host sites to install the WiFi hot spots so that the service is available in the parking lots at each site. The Mayor said the hotspots will be available for at least three months to help students access educational materials until regular school classes resume.  The WiFi hotspots are in the parking lots of the following locations: 
  • 76ers Fieldhouse, at 401 Garasches Lane, Wilmington, DE 19801
  • Kingswood Community Center, at 2300 Bowers St., Wilmington, DE 19802
  • Teen Warehouse, at 1121 Thatcher St., Wilmington, DE 19802
  • William ‘Hicks’ Anderson Community Center, at 501 N. Madison St., Wilmington, DE 19801
  • People’s Settlement Association, at 408 E. 8th St., Wilmington, DE 19801 
The sites will be available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., seven days a week. The Mayor stressed that the WiFi hot spots are for City students so they can access their study materials, but the sites are available to the public in general if the sites can assist residents with issues or information related to COVID-19 Read the full article here.
