CTC Offers Public WiFi Spots Throughout the Area

Web posted March 24, 2020
In an effort to provide critical internet services for those who may have little or no access, CTC has opened several public WiFi spots throughout the area. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the temporary closing of schools, gathering spaces, restaurants, and other public buildings, the demand for internet has increased as more people are telecommuting, engaging in distance learning, and staying at home.

To find the nearest public WiFi location, visit CTC’s Google map at https://tinyurl.com/ufnsac8. The map will be updated in real time as more locations are activated and added in the coming days. There will be no need to leave your vehicle or enter any nearby buildings in order to access the WiFi. Simply park in the area and search for a network named “CTC WiFi”. It will be free to use and will allow anyone to access high-speed, reliable internet from a safe location.

Area law enforcement have been notified that there may be more traffic and parked vehicles in these areas. Area school district officials have also been contacted so that families and students are aware of these services.

For current CTC members, CTC is also offering free internet speed upgrades for two months. Customers are encouraged to call and request this service change.

CTC has closed their Brainerd, Baxter, and Crosby offices to walk-in visitors. However, the CTC customer service team is available 24/7 via phone, email, or online support. Customers can also drop off payments at all locations and drop off equipment outside the Baxter office.

A link to the Google map, along with other pertinent COVID information for CTC’s operations can be found on their website at www.goctc.com/covid.
