CISCO donates free Wi-Fi access at 10 community sites

Residents will be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi access at 10 locations across the Cayman Islands, following an announcement by Joey Hew, the minister responsible for infrastructure. Global networking company CISCO donated the technology and equipment for the Wi-Fi hotspots to provide relief to the social impact caused by COVID-19 and help those without internet access connect with family, friends and online resources. Utility regulator OfReg coordinated the project, while local IT company Unified Technologies installed the infrastructure and deployed the technology with telecom carrier Flow providing the bandwidth.

The free Wi-Fi hotspots are accessible at all times at:

  • District Administration Building on Cayman Brac
  • George Town Public Library
  • Government House
  • James M. Bodden Sr. Civic Centre
  • North Side Community
  • Seafarers Association Meeting Hall
  • South Sound Community Centre
  • University College of Cayman Islands
  • West Bay Public Library
  • William Allen McLaughlin Civic Centre

The launch of the initiative comes as Cayman is easing the three-month shelter-in-place restrictions in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. CISCO said it aims to bridge the digital divide within the islands with its donation.
