Technology and Infrastructure

The Information Services Department (ISD) Wireless team implemented 12 Public Wi-Fi sites throughout the greater San Mateo County region during FY 2016-17, in an aim to close the digital divide by creating wireless Internet connectivity for those with limited or no access. The addition of this infrastructure provides all residents with equal access to online knowledge and resources. Sites were chosen based on: a) technical feasibility, b) prioritizing unserved or underserved communities, c) spurring local economic development, and d) providing greater access to County services. Thus far in FY 2017-18, all candidate sites have been vetted and it was determined that seven new sites will be added this year in addition to upgrading six existing sites that were previously inactive. A Wi-Fi vendor will start work in March, and all sites are on target to be completed this fiscal year. 

Since the program’s inception three years ago, a total of 36 Public Wi-Fi sites have been installed. The sites added in FY 2016-17 included:
