Cathlamet WI-FI system is back on track
March 24, 2022
The public Wi-Fi system in the Cathlamet downtown area had stalled because of personnel and equipment issues, but one of the partners in the project, Wahkiakum PUD, has stepped in to help get it back on track.
Employees of the PUD joined Network Manager Steve Carson of Skamokawa Internet last week to resume construction of the system on Main Street.
“We can all look forward to final system completion and activation in the near future,” Mayor David Olson said, who added that they would be working with the Wahkiakum Chamber of Commerce, another partner, to organize a launch event as well as promotional outreach.
“I look forward to Cathlamet hosting the best free public WiFi system in southwest Washington, if not the state,” Olson said. “Thanks to all, and big thanks to the PUD for contributing the labor and equipment to get the system built on Main Street.
