Town of Herndon Moves Forward on Free WiFi, Charging Station in Downtown Herndon

Free WiFi and a new electric vehicle charging station is coming soon to downtown Herndon.

The Herndon Town Council is considering amending its agreement with Vivacity Networks to add an electric vehicle charging station and set up WiFi and smart city functionality in the town.

The council will discuss changes to the agreement at a meeting tomorrow (Tuesday).

Last year, the town announced a plan to launch a pilot program to bring LED lights and free WiFi to the downtown area.

In response to questions about the implementation of the project, a town spokeswoman told Reston Now that the town will release more information about the project soon, including when free WiFi will go live.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m. tomorrow (Dec. 3) at the Herndon Council Chambers building (765 Lynn Street).
