Downtown Wi-Fi

How to Connect
When in downtown Athens on the square or at Market Park, find the "Downtown WIFI" network in your WiFi settings and connect. Your device should prompt you to sign in to the network, which brings you to a page with the terms of use and the option to connect. Once you accept the terms and connect, you can enjoy the free WiFi!

Free WiFi for downtown Athens was unveiled in 2020. It was a collaboration between the City of Athens, Athens Utilities Board, and other community partners. The Appalachian Regional Commission awarded a $37,500 grant to the City of Athens for the project. The WiFi is served from equipment attached to the traffic lights downtown.
