TERRE HAUTE — Free wireless Internet service is now available all across the downtown.

Frontier Communications announced this morning that it has launched Wi-Fi service covering the downtown from Poplar Street in the south to near Union Hospital in the north and from Third Street in the west to about 10th Street in the east.

Free usage of the network is limited to 100 users at any time. Frontier is also offering a faster-speed, fee-based Wi-Fi service covering the same area.

Marc Evans, regional general manager for Frontier, announced the new system is up and running this morning at an event at Clabber Girl. Terre Haute is the first city in the Frontier system to have a “community” Wi-Fi system operational, Evans said.
