Always a hot stop – D-River Wayside now Wi-Fi hotspot

Wireless Internet access is up-and-running and making the D-River Wayside in Lincoln City quite the hotspot.

From Oct. 1 to Oct. 30, the wayside logged 126 hours of Internet usage… greatly exceeding expectations, according to Craig Tutor, development and marketing manager for the Oregon Travel Information Council, which installed the access at D-River.

The travel council is the state agency responsible for putting travel information kiosks and the blue food-and-gas signs near highway exits. The council also runs the state welcome centers.

Wireless access went live at the D-River at the end of September.

With people growing accustomed to being able to communicate with one another in far-flung locations with a flick of a keyboard or cell phone… providing services, such as Wi-Fi hot spots, is becoming critical, Tutor says.

Visitors to the wayside can access select Web sites, such as tripcheck.com, for free. To check e-mail or access other Web sites, users will be charged $1.99 for 20 minutes, $3.99 for the day and $7.99 for a week.

However, Tutor believes eventually access to most sites and e-mail will be free, with the cost of operating the Wi-Fi site paid by advertising revenue. Full Story…
