The company that brought wireless Internet to Monument Square is looking to expand the service along Racine's waterfront.
TC3 Telecom, 3701 Durand Ave., wants permission from the city to add wireless access points at North Beach, Reef Point Harbor, the Root River near Pugh Marina and the area around Festival Hall.
Dan Byers, president of TC3 Telecom, is scheduled to appear before the Civic Centre Commission on Wednesday to present his plan.
In a letter to the city, Byers said the proposal will not cost the city money. He plans to pay for the service with donations and advertising on the service's web page, which will pop up when people log on. Byers added he'd even pay the city for the electricity needed to run the wireless service.
Byers needs city permission to mount wireless routers on North Beach's beach house, Festival Hall and a light post at the end of Pershing Drive.
RAMAC's Racine Technology Organization would manage the system.
