Background 

We live in the heart of Silicon Valley, but even in San Mateo County we have a significant digital divide between those with high speed Internet access and those with slow speed or no access. In 2014, the County of San Mateo launched its SMC Public WiFi program to help build out this infrastructure and provide these modern on-ramps to the resources available online. In addition to servicing un-served and underserved communities, SMC Public WiFi supports educational opportunities for students, spurs local economic development, and provides greater access to County services.
