SASKATOON – Free public Wi-Fi is coming to some spots around Saskatoon in the coming months. City officials say it’s coming to major transit hubs as well as city hall and leisure centres.

The service comes at no cost to the city as city partner Shaw Communications is picking up the tab.

Shaw customers will automatically be connected while those who are not will be able to connect by signing in through guest access.

“It provides free access to a service that lots of people have asked for,” said Service Saskatoon manager Rob Gihuly.

“And I think it provides services to city online services for people. We’re really trying to promote online access to our services, especially to our website.”
