COVID-19 Hot Spots Open
Published March 23, 2020
In response to the growing demands for internet access as a result of the coronavirus, Enhanced Telecommunications Corporation (ETC), in cooperation with several local partners, has begun opening ‘parking lot’ hotspots, providing free public internet access from your vehicle.
“The coronavirus has created an increased demand for internet access,” said ETC Marketing Manager Anita Fledderman. “As more individuals are working from home and students are e-learning, these free internet-access locations are intended to help meet that demand. These hotspots should be particularly helpful for areas where internet access is lacking.”
These temporary hotspots are intended for use from the parking lots only. Entrance inside any building is prohibited. Users accessing internet from these locations should do so from their vehicles. To access internet on most devices, go to Settings, search for Wi-Fi options, and select ETC Complimentary Hotspot. All spots are open during daylight hours; evening hours vary by location.
Current locations include:
St. Michael’s Church, Brookville (next to Parish Office)
St. John’s Napoleon
New Point Community Center
Versailles Church of Christ
Decatur County Fairgrounds
Sunman Community Park
ETC wishes to thank all site locations and other partners for their cooperation in helping host these free hotspots.
Anyone with questions about a hotspot site should direct inquiries to ETC (866-ETC-4YOU).
