Lead City Commission Approves Addition of Wi-Fi to Manuel Brothers Park

At its May 15 meeting, the Lead City Commission approved a contract to connect Manuel Brothers Park to the internet via Wi-Fi, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The commission will utilize Allnet, the internet service contractor already utilized by the city.

An initial one-time set-up fee of $6,500 will be used to install a transmitter and receiver, wiring and mounting. After that, the service will cost the city $525 annually. While users will be able to browse the internet on their devices in the park, measures will be taken to prevent downloading data-intensive items like movies.
