Visting our area and need to "connect"? We have a bunch of Wifi hotspots you can choose from, some provided by local businesses, others as part of a wi-fi hotspot corridor created by POVN and CNS.
Wi-fi Hotspot Corridor
POVN, Newport's local internet provider, and CNS (Community Network Systems of the PUD) has created a free wi-fi hotspot corridor from Metaline Falls to Newport. Locations to connect to "POVN-Hotspot" include Metaline Falls, Metaline, Ione, Cusick, Skookum Rendezvous in Usk, and Newport. (See Map)
This hotspot corridor lets anyone traveling down from Canada or vacationing in these areas connect to the internet for free.*
*If you need more than the free hour, you can purchase more time at $4.95 per day, $19.95 per week, and $59.95 per month. Each purchase is transferable to all hotspot locations without extra cost. Any questions or assistance call 1-888-800-POVN (7686).
