Mayor Edwin M. Lee today announced that #SFWiFi, the City’s free municipal wireless Internet access (Wi-Fi) service, will receive technology upgrades along Market Street, the City’s busiest and most economically diverse corridor and home to some of the City’s largest, free public celebrations, including free events for Super Bowl 50, in time for Super Bowl week. Service expansions will also include #SFWiFi availability in five San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) stations along Market Street: Embarcadero, Montgomery, Powell, Civic Center and Van Ness.

“Enhanced reliable, free high-speed Internet along Market Street will help all San Franciscans stay connected,” said Mayor Lee. “Improvements will be made in time for our free, public celebrations for Super Bowl 50 and will be a lasting legacy after the celebrations are over. Whether you’re a tourist buying a ticket to ride our historic cable cars, a resident paying your water bill or a small business taking mobile electronic payments, we are leveraging technology to help our residents, visitors and businesses.”
