PANGAEA built a prototype Wi-Fi system in Tryon before applying for and receiving a grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC).  PANGAEA partnered with the ARC and the towns to provide free community Wi-Fi for casual and temporary use, as part of its nonprofit community focus.

Wi-Fi usage has far exceeded expectations. The original target was 18,000 annual users. Since the project inception in 2015, more than 500,000 users have accessed the networks.

PANGAEA Wi-Fi is available in many downtown areas of Polk & Rutherford counties including Harmon Field and Lake Lure Beach (see map below).

To use the free community Wi-Fi, simply search for “PANGAEA Public Wi-Fi” under the Wi-Fi settings of your phone, tablet or laptop.
