The McKenzie Communications team officially placed their first McKenzie Free WiFi hotspot in March of 2021 to replace the once taken down by the Oregon Internet Response (OIR) team. The hotspot is located in the parking lot between Takodas and Blue Sky Market.
The free internet hotspot was installed with the help of technology partners, Elevate Technology Group. The IO box was donated by OIR and the UPS (backup power supply) was offered to MCC at a reduced rate by Randy Neals, a member of OIR. Alex Hanlon of PDX Wraps in Portland provided the branding and signage for the project.
Another McKenzie Free WiFi Hotspot has been set up inside the McKenzie Pub in McKenzie Bridge Oregon and is available for use in the parking lot of the Pub. MCC has plans to install several more hotspots in strategic locations along the McKenzie River. The McKenzie River Chamber of has provided $2000 in funds to help support MCC’s McKenzie Free Wifi Hotspots.
