City of Opelika Announces Free Outdoor WiFi Now Available Downtown


The City of Opelika has recently installed WiFi in downtown as a way to better serve residents, businesses and visitors. The wireless network offers immediate access in the downtown railroad area between 10th Street and 7th Street on both the North and South sides.

“This free access will provide data and information to keep visitors downtown, as well as encourage foot traffic around our restaurants and businesses. It encourages tourism and growth and we are excited to now offer this,” says Stephen Dawe, CTO, City of Opelika.

There are plans to expand the free access to Courthouse Square and along 8th street and 9th Street in the coming months. The city currently has free Wi-Fi service at Municipal Park and Bandy Park as well.

Dawe adds, the process to access the service is simple. People can connect to CityofOpelika-Guest. This will then connect a user to a legal page where he/she must agree to terms and conditions by clicking on Continue to Internet. This will automatically open the user’s browser to the city’s website (

It’s important for residents and visitors to know that this is an unsupported network and the city will not provide tech support or change any web filters. This system is public, free and unsecured. If your email is not encrypted, be aware of the type information you transmit when on the free Wi-Fi service.
