Mayor announces launch of free outdoor Wi-Fi service in Russell neighborhood

  • 4 mths ago

Mayor Greg Fischer, joined by representatives of the Louisville Metro Housing Authority and Russell area residents, announced today that Louisville Metro Government (LMG) has launched free outdoor Wi-Fi throughout the Russell neighborhood.

“In today’s world, fast internet is as necessary as any utility — for work, for learning, for health,” Mayor Fischer said. “Unfortunately, we know that far too many people, especially people in low-income neighborhoods, are being put further behind because they do not have reliable, fast internet.

The Wi-Fi program is funded through a $400,000 Choice Neighborhoods Implementation grant awarded to the city through the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.
