Free Wi-Fi Coming To Baton Rouge Parks

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Parkgoers now can tap into a Wi-Fi connection at 25 Baton Rouge park facilities, as long as they don't stroll too far from the buildings.

         The East Baton Rouge Parish Recreation and Park Commission is offering three public Wi-Fi options, the most basic of which will allow people to spend two hours on the Internet daily for free with slower speeds. The other two options, which BREC classifies as premium services, cost $5 each. The speeds on those connections will be faster, with better streaming quality and the ability to download large files.

         Steven Knight, BREC information technology director, tells The Advocate’s Andrea Gallo they started adding beta versions of Wi-Fi to parks in the summer, and there have been more than 5,000 connections made since August.
