Free Wi-Fi Fired Up In Campus Martius, Cadillac Square

DETROIT (WWJ) — Now there’s another reason to hang out in Campus Martius Park and Cadillac Square in downtown Detroit — free wireless Internet access.

The free network is called Opportunity Detroit and is sponsored by Bedrock Real Estate Services, the real estate arm of the Quicken Loans business empire of entrepreneur Dan Gilbert, and the Southfield data center and IT services provider 123.Net.

That means visitors to Campus Martius can now work or play on the Web while they check out the social scene.

Visitors will also have access to this network in the lobbies of Rock Ventures’ adjacent buildings — the First National Building, Chase Tower and the 1001 Woodward Building.

“This is an effort to activate the streets and bring people to downtown Detroit to live, work, and play,” said Laura Biehl, public relations manager at Quicken Loans.
