Wi-Fi is a trade name for the popular wireless technology used in home networks, mobile networks, and electronic devices, like laptops and iPhones that require this type of wireless network to connect to the internet or to a private network.  This technology became available in Ponca City after an outdoor wireless network was installed to provide field communications for City services such Police, Fire, and Energy, improving worker efficiencies and level of service for customers.  However, the testing of this network showed that it was robust enough to handle not only municipal traffic, but also citizens’ traffic.  So, the Ponca City Board of Commissioners voted to allow the extra internet access to be given to the citizens of Ponca City for FREE!  Ponca City is the first municipality in Oklahoma to provide this community service to its citizens.  Few cities worldwide provide this service.  You can read the press release from November 10, at
