Wireless internet in downtown Kingsport? It is hard to believe that such technology would come to town of golden-oldies, I mean the Model City but it seems that it might be a possibility. Kingsport usually isn't the city that's an innovator, but some people are researching the possibility that the downtown area could be covered with free, wireless internet. Personally, I would probably never use it, but it is such a great idea for the redeveloping downtown area. Imagine the businesses that would go crazy over the idea of such technology and would be willing to relocate to Broad Street. The city definitely needs seriously consider this idea and not let it fall into the back-burner. Imagine Kinsport having a service that most larger cities do not have; I think it would be a great incentive for commercial development! Click here for the article from the Kingsport Times-News. By the way, I have no idea who those people are in the picture.
