New Wi-Fi hotspots — from Moloka‘i’s remote Kalaupapa area to bus stops and community gathering places — are now available on Kaua‘i, Maui, Moloka‘i and O‘ahu, with Hawai‘i island locations planned for implementation.

The Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA) has announced the first wave of free public Wi-Fi hotspots  will offer one hour of free service per device per day. The project is part of a DCCA requirement of Spectrum/Oceanic   Time Warner Cable to provide 100 new public Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the state in parks, community centers and other public open areas. For the hotspot locations, go to http://cca.hawaii.gov/broadband/dcca-designated-wifi-hotspots/.
