Oakland plans to provide free high-speed internet access for residents in public housing in an effort to close the digital divide, officials announced.
The Oakland Housing Authority plans to supply 1,117 households in the city’s five largest public housing communities with free wireless internet access by 2024, city officials said in a statement Saturday. Community rooms and areas will also have free Wi-Fi.
