Gowex launches free public wi-fi

Gowex has launched free, public wi-fi service in downtown Chicago and neighborhoods north to Lake View.

The Madrid-based company says it has installed 450 hotspots here, the company’s fourth U.S. city. Gowex’s ad-supported service is already up and running in Miami, New York City and San Francisco. The company’s goal is to offer free wi-fi in 600 major cities worldwide in the next five years.

“We are very proud of our contribution to make Chicago a hyper-connected WiFi City … with this new project we continue to expand and strengthen our presence in the U.S.,” Gowex CEO Jenaro Garcia said in a news release.

Users can access Gowex service via the company’s mobile app.
