Public Wifi

Free public wireless service is now available at Beachgrounds Park at 137 Main Street and on the Town Commons on College Street, at the intersection of Hadley and Woodbridge Streets.  Anyone with a wireless ready device can connect to the unrestricted Shadley-Public network at these locations.  Funding for this project was provided to the Town of South Hadley by a grant from the Massachusetts Office of Business Development to the Economic Development Council of Western Massachusetts, Inc. The intent of the project is to offer publicly accessible wireless connection to people utilizing town-owned outdoor recreational properties in South Hadley Falls and in the heart of the heavily used commercial center at the northern end of town.

Public wifi internet access is completely at the discretion of the Town and may not always be available.  It is not the intention for this service to replace residential/commercial internet access.

Over the next year, connections and usage will be monitored to determine if further investment is warranted.
