Edwin Lee’s response

Dec 23, 2013 — We just took another significant step to improve connectivity by bringing free Wi-Fi service along San Francisco’s main boulevard - Market street, from the Embarcadero to our historic Castro neighborhood. On average, a quarter-million people traverse this three-mile corridor every day. Market street is the main artery of our City and one of our most economically diverse corridors. This new network takes advantage of the City’s existing fiber network to provide a new service to the public. Our investment in free WIFI on Market Street is one component of a larger vision for greater connectivity in the City as a whole. We are implementing a broader Connectivity strategy, with a focus on equity and quality of life for all residents, workforce development across all communities, continued support of economic development and job creation, and enhancing educational opportunities for all.
