FORT WORTH CONVENTION CENTER OFFERS FREE WI-FI SERVICE
FORT WORTH, Texas - The Fort Worth Convention Center (FWCC) now offers complimentary Wi-Fi service in public areas of the center including the concourse, hallways and pre-function areas, through its partnership with Smart City Networks.
The upgraded amenity provides visitors to the FWCC wireless Internet connection in any of the convention center's public spaces to check email or utilize the web at no cost. Until now, Wi-Fi connectivity was only available at the FWCC for a fee.
"At the Convention Center, we are constantly looking to upgrade service and provide added value to our customers and the individuals that use our facility," said Kirk Slaughter, City of Fort Worth's Public Events Director. "With a recent $75 million upgrade to the exterior and interior spaces of our center, superior service policies, and new development in our downtown surrounding the FWCC, we believe that Fort Worth offers the best value and experience for convention planners and guests. Offering free Wi-Fi is just another way we are extending our hospitality."
A two-tiered Internet service is still available to purchase for visitors with more advanced connectivity needs, like streaming video and downloading large files. The free Wi-Fi service is fully operational at the FWCC and able to support thousands of users at once.
