Fayetteville has expanded its public Wi-Fi access to include 10 new locations around town.

Free Wi-Fi was added in 8 public parks, as well as in two popular parking locations near Dickson Street.

The new locations are in addition to existing free Wi-Fi areas on the downtown square, the public library, and the city’s senior center.

The city recently negotiated a new telecommunications contract that includes the new Wi-Fi locations as well as faster speeds, all with a $605 savings each month, according to a news release.
