From the San Antonio Report:

When Wi-Fi routers are installed and activated at Mission Park and Riverside Apartments, 24,276 residents who live in public housing projects will have free access to the internet, according to officials.

Opportunity Home San Antonio has developed about 100 affordable housing properties across the city. Of the properties it manages, most will have free Wi-Fi.

“The capability that all communities will soon have is going to change the lives of those we serve,” Jo Ana Alvardo, the agency’s director of innovative technology, stated in a news release. “Our residents will no longer have stress about how they can get connected digitally; they can access the internet on their device from any area in their apartment community.”
