Thomasville: Wireless Hub?

By  | 

City officials say they already have a large computer network and it will become more mobile.

City officials say the new technology would grant access to link up to the wireless connection from any of the service areas.

Don Atkinson, Assistant City Manager, says, "They'll be able to come into these zones, which we'll establish as we move along. We're starting in downtown and they'll be able to get on the Internet. If they're already a Rose customer they'll be able to get on at no charge, it's a value added service."

Atkinson says the wireless service will also enhance city services such as utilities, public works and police. He says they will be able to use their laptops out in the field improving customer service.
