In a 7-0 vote, Iowa City City Council approved the Pedestrian Mall Wi-Fi resolution Tuesday evening.

The Iowa City Downtown District has negotiated with South Slope to provide limited free Wi-Fi service in that area. However, before the service could be executed, a location would be needed to mount two access points.

Although the Iowa City Public Library provides this service, the access points are limited in coverage and no longer meet public needs. South Slope will mount new, more robust access points at the same locations on the roof as the obsolete access points.

The access points will provide up to two hours of free Wi-Fi every 24 hours to members in public in exchange for use of space on the library’s roof.
