Soon the city of Vancouver will have one of the largest networks of free wi-fi in North America and Kitsilano will benefit.

The partnership with Shaw began several years ago and already provides free internet at hundreds of access points, most of which are in the downtown core.

“Shaw’s expansion of #VanWiFi, covering more than 500 locations in the downtown core and surrounding areas, is a huge win for our residents and businesses, and helps to move Vancouver forward in becoming a truly leading Smart City,” said Mayor Robertson.

A map detailing both active and “coming soon” wi-fi hotspots shows this expansion will bring more access to Kitsilano.

The downtown core, the downtown eastside, and sections of transportation corridors such as Main Street, Broadway, and Commercial, are already well covered by current hotspots.
