City of Montgomery will offer free internet hotspot for kids at community center

MONTGOMERY, WV (WOAY) – The City of Montgomery will be extending their WiFi to the old WVU Tech David S. Long Alumni Center for the kids in the area to use for school. 

This will begin in two weeks while crews set up the WiFi and set up security cameras around the premises.

Any school-aged child can come to the center and use the WiFi after 3 p.m.

“So many people don’t have WiF,i so we are putting together a WiFi hotspot here in Montgomery and putting picnic tables out and putting security cameras and the things that we need to make it secure for the kids,” Montgomery Mayor Greg Ingram said. 

The city is also hoping to allow for teachers to request the space to tutor inside the building.
