Log on in downtown Jackson

Within the next six-to-eight weeks, weather permitting, workers, browsers, wanderers, college students and others who carry laptops or WiFi capable telephones will be able to access the Internet outside of nearly every business in downtown Jackson - for free.

"Our goal is to light up all of the public space in downtown, said Jonathan Harlan, owner of Aeneas Internet and Telephone on College Street.

When installed, computer users will be able to access the Internet when outside The Baker's Rack, the bus depot, City Hall, Farmers' Market, around the Madison County Courthouse, both sides of the public library, including Rotary Park, Rockabilly Park, Starbucks, and in the park between the courthouses on South Highland.

Harlan has teamed with Hal Crocker of Crocker Construction and the Jackson Downtown Development Corp. to install the network.
"No public money or JDDC money will be spent on it," Harlan said. "We are Jackson's Internet provider, and we think it will help promote downtown."
