Come Surf the Greenway!
Free carrier-grade wireless internet access (Wi-Fi) is available on The Greenway, one of the largest free networks in the Commonwealth! Look for the “Greenway” wireless network on your laptop, tablet, or smartphone and start surfing.
Through a partnership with PTS, DAS Communications, and Anaptyx, Greenway Wi-Fi is provided on a high-speed backbone from Towerstream. Users have a 802.11ac broadband experience with Ruckus equipment purpose-built to withstand harsh outdoor environments. Read about the network and partnership in our installation press release.
“In today’s digital world access to Wi-Fi is essential, and I thank the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy for their commitment to improving free public Wi-Fi throughout the Greenway,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “As a global city, it is important that we continue to expand broadband access to improve the lives of residents and visitors, and increase the success of local businesses.”
To access the Greenway Wi-Fi network, first enable your device’s Wi-Fi, then configure your device to use the “Greenway” network (SSID). You will be presented with a disclaimer that you must agree to, and then be rerouted to The Greenway home page. Enjoy streaming video, listening to music, or emailing with fast 10Mbps down- and up-load speeds!
Because this is a public network, data transmitted is not secure. It is highly recommended that you use VPN if you want to connect to your office or other sensitive networks. Connecting to SSL (https) websites is also safe on public networks.
