Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Alvarez participates in the third Miami-Dade Wireless Pilot Project launch, on April 10, 2008, at Goulds Park. For six months, free wireless service, sponsored by Wialan Technologies, will be available at Goulds Park. In addition to the free wireless service, six laptops have been placed in the Goulds recreational center for residents without WiFi access. Security cameras have also been placed around the park to allow for increased public safety.

“The goal of Wireless Miami-Dade is to create an environment that is technologically appealing to residents, visitors and businesses; to reach out to underserved people who frequent our parks with their families and friends; and to establish and maintain community safety,” Mayor Alvarez said. “I am confident that our residents in South Dade will take full advantage of the newly connected and secured Goulds Park.”

Since the wireless project kickoff just two months ago in Tropical Park and then Tamiami Park, more than 1,800 residents have made more than 4,000 wireless connections.
