Special introductory offer: free Wi-Fi in Steilacoom

By now Century Tel’s free Wi-Fi network in Steilacoom is officially open for business. Some of you may even be reading this blog over that network.

The Steilacoom network’s ceremonial debut was scheduled for 11 a.m. today, though most of the network had been unofficially available for weeks.

The free wireless Internet cloud over the town is an experiment to test the technical and marketing possibilities of digital communication that eventually could expand to cover much of Pierce County.

The 60-day trial will offer residents and visitors a taste of wireless Internet access throughout the town. After that, the system will move to a subscription model. Prices have not yet been set. Next expansion site: Orting.
