Downtown Grand Junction's big announcement is finally out. Starting today (Feb. 1) free WiFi is now available in downtown Grand Junction along Main Street.

The Grand Junction Downtown Development Authority partnered with 32Waves to bring us free WiFI to downtown Grand Junction. Free WiFi is now available along Main Street in downtown Grand Junction from 3rd to 7th Street.

All you need to do to get that free WiFi is select the "Downtown WiFi network" then enter your email and zip code. You can opt to receive downtown updates on happenings and events, according to KJCT.

The 32Waves network collects information about when people are visiting and where they are from. I think this will be helpful in increasing our tourism in Grand Junction.

The only restriction is during special events, WiFi is limited to a two-hour session between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

I'm surprised that we didn't already have free WiFi, but now that we do, it's here to stay. Welcome to downtown Grand Junction, free WiFi.
