This Toronto neighbourhood just got free WiFi for a year

Don't worry about wasting your data if you're playing Pokemon Go in this Toronto neighbourhood. That's because Parkdale now has free WiFi thanks to the technology-focused non-profit reBOOT Canada.

Parkdale Activity and Recreation Centre and Parkdale Community Legal Services will be hosting the two WiFi hotspots, as Metro News writes today. And you'll be able to connect from Sorauren to Dufferin.

This pilot project will last for one year. There's no word on whether or not this community partnership model will be rolled out to other areas of the city. And more important than Pokemon Go, this initiative will give those without data plans access to the web 24 hours a day.

Where would you like to see free WiFi in Toronto? Let us know in the comments.
