(July 13, 2023) - MLConnect has added two new free Wi-Fi hotspots in Houston and Lewis counties. This increases the provider's public broadband accessibility to 12 locations across the five-county service area.
The Houston County hotspot is in Stewart at the Magnolia Community Center at 6335 Whiteoak Road. In Lewis County, Wi-Fi is now available at the Buffalo River Public Access Point in Hohenwald. The additions ensure fast, reliable, internet for members utilizing public facilities. The Buffalo River Public Access Point also has poor cellular reception, so the hotspot will enable Wi-Fi calling or texting in the event of emergencies.
MLEC and MLConnect are committed to helping our area grow by providing innovative ways to serve our members. As a result, we provide free Wi-Fi hotspots to keep our members connected. Those traveling to these areas can find new hotspot locations as well as the 10 existing access points at www.mlec.com/my-mlec-wifi.
