Port Townsend: Wireless computer service coming to Point Hudson, marina?

PORT TOWNSEND — Wireless Internet access appears to be on the way for guests at the Port Townsend Marina and Point Hudson.

Port of Port Townsend officials are excited about contract negotiations with a Seattle company to provide the service to moorage tenants at both locations.

Campers at Point Hudson could also tap into the service.

“The new hot button in the techie world right now is wireless Internet,” Port Facilities Manager Jim Pivarnik said Wednesday.

The contract was brought before Port commissioners at a meeting in the Point Hudson Marina Room.

S2S Wireless of Bothell will offer the service at no cost to the Port, Pivarnik said.

In addition, the Port will get free wireless Internet access.

The Port would be asked to provide electricity for the service, but the wireless sites would require less power than a 100 watt lightbulb, Pivarnik said.

S2S is seeking a three-year contract to offer the service, and doesn’t require exclusive rights — meaning another company could also move in to offer similar service.
