EDINBURG – On Thursday, September 30, 2021, Hidalgo County Precinct 3 will host a community event to promote the free Hidalgo County Public Wi-Fi Project. With the completion of the installation of Wi-Fi radios in the Los Ebanos Community, Commissioner Everardo Villarreal, La Joya ISD, and the Hidalgo County Information Technology Department would like to invite the community to start using the free Wi-Fi network. Precinct 3 staff will be onsite with laptops to show residents how to use and connect to the free network.
“We know that more work must be done to ensure Hidalgo County residents and students have access to internet service,” said Hidalgo County Commissioner Villarreal. “Making these free Wi-Fi hotspot locations easily available is an important bridge to increasing the accessibility to important educational resources for our children.”
“While free public Wi-Fi hotspots are not a replacement for in-class instruction, they are essential for those needing connectivity during a time when education, work, and healthcare are relying more and more on online platforms,” Commissioner Villarreal said. “Free Public Wi-Fi will help Precinct 3 residents stay connected.”
