Google to provide Wi-Fi at Douglasville parks | News
DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. -- The name Google will be seen throughout Douglasville, due to the city's agreement to accept the tech giant's offer of free Wi-Fi in exchange for name placement in areas where the service is provided.
The Douglasville City Council voted unanimously to authorize Douglasville's mayor to enter in contracts with Google for installation and operation of an outdoor wireless Internet to cover downtown areas, Jessie Davis Park and Hunter Park.
"It is an exciting time with the city of Douglasville," Mayor Harvey Persons said in a statement. "The people from Google have graciously agreed to work with the city at this point in time to help us do this -- not only help us do it, but to provide the financing or the monies to be able to do that."
