Project Connect – Free WiFi at Trailblazer Park

Posted on

In partnership with Greenville County Schools and with the help and support of five corporate partners, including Cradlepoint, Encore Technology Group, Network Controls, Sun Surveillance and Synnex Corporation, the City of Travelers Rest is pleased to announce free WiFi access for local students at Trailblazer Park.

The components to build “Project Connect” a solar-powered WiFi system, were purchased with $248,000 in CARES Act funding administrated through Greater Greenville and will will assist large segments of Greenville County’s student population not only during this unprecedented pandemic, but also beyond when the crisis has passed. The units are self-contained and require no wiring to anything. Once positioned, they will provide much-needed internet access for students within the community.
