Weisiger will be wireless by Aug. 5.
Redwood Property Management is installing wireless Internet access for some of its properties downtown, including the Subway, Three Babes and a Monkey and the apartments above those restaurants. The extra bandwidth is being donated to the Federal Building, for the Community Arts Center, and Weisiger Park, in front of the courthouse.
Manager Charlie Raffay said, "We talk about downtown revitalization and now we're kind of putting our money where our mouth is to make it happen."
AT&T is installing the network.
To catch the hot spot, users will need:
* A laptop with a 802.11g wireless network card; 802.11b wireless cards will work, but AT&T advised users to upgrade to a “g” standard radio for higher bandwidth.
