The City of Calgary has announced they’ve installed free WiFi to all of their recreation facilities.

All 27 recreation locations across the city, including the most recent addition of the Calgary Soccer Centre, now have WiFi available to anyone using the facilities.

Shaw Communications will be providing the WiFi, bringing the number of City facilities with free WiFi up to 40.

“Recreational centres play an integral role in bringing communities together,” says Greg Pultz, vice president of operations of Shaw Communications in a release.

“The partnership with the City of Calgary to provide free public WiFi through the Shaw Go WiFi network helps keep residents connected to the world and everything in it while saving their mobile data.”

Since the City of Calgary launched public WiFi back in 2014, nearly 4 million megabites of data have been consumed with 3 million connections.

While Shaw Go customers will be able to automatically log on, everyone else will have to select the “ShawGuest” WiFi network from the list of WiFi settings.
