Connected Jasper

May 9, 2024 - Yesterday, The City of Jasper, in partnership with Tengo Internet and Alabama Power, announced the launch of free public Wi-Fi in Jasper.

Free public Wi-Fi is now accessible in Jasper, courtesy of a collaboration between Alabama Power and Tengo Internet. Through this collaboration, Connected Jasper has emerged, supported by a $1.6 million federal grant from the Department of the Interior and the Alabama Department of Labor through the Abandoned Mine Lands Program. This project is designed to boost economic opportunities in the area and improve the overall quality of life for the community.
Several locations in Jasper will be equipped with public Wi-Fi access points, including the downtown entertainment areas, which will provide free internet access to students, residents, businesses, and visitors. Additionally, access points will be located at two public schools in the city, five housing authorities, the Jasper Public Library, and the city-owned ballpark. The network is designed to support up to 500 devices at one time with approximately 53 access points.
