Introducing free WiFi in Downtown Grand Junction!

Downtown Grand Junction is pleased to announce the availability of free public WiFi.  The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) has partnered with local network provider 32Waves to serve public WiFi along Main Street between Third and Seventh streets.  The DDA entered into a five-year agreement with 32Waves to build and maintain a secure public WiFi network that utilizes existing DDA fiber and infrastructure.

“32Waves is very excited to bring this long-anticipated amenity to its hometown. As a local business, we believe we hold the responsibility to contribute to our community in meaningful ways; developing and delivering cost-effective technology solutions that better our home, neighbors, and friends. Downtown WiFi is our first step in pursuit to give back to a community that has made us who we are.” — Colter Lovette, President/32 Waves

The availability of public WiFi in Downtown Grand Junction will be a wonderful, new amenity to Downtown visitors who will have free access to public WiFi.  The Business Improvement District (BID) will also be able to utilize the public WiFi during Downtown events for vendors and event organizers. Allison Blevins, Downtown BID Director, says, “I am so excited to bring an additional amenity to our Downtown patrons and visitors. Not only is this a fantastic feature for visitors, but it will also be such a benefit to our events!”

32Waves’ flexible network structure allows the DDA and BID to dictate times of availability, provide visitors valuable information about Downtown, and gather data about who is visiting our district and when.

The free public Downtown WiFi is available to visitors for a two-hour session between the hours of 8 am and 8 pm, Monday-Sunday and during special events. Visitors can access the WiFi in four easy steps.
