The city of Grapevine is now offering free wi-fi in downtown.

The Colleyville Courier reports that the city finished installing the wireless network this week and currently has about 10-15 users per day -- even before the service was promoted.

Users will be able to access the network near the Main Street Gazebo, which hosts the Grapevine Farmers Market and other community events.

Visitors to Grapefest and Main Street Days will also benefit from the wireless network, which city leaders said they hopes boosts tourism and business in the area.

“If people have more information, they may stay longer,” P.W. McCallum, Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau director told the paper. “If you’re looking for a particular cuisine, and you can’t research it right then, and you know there’s one six miles away, you’re going drive to it.”

The project cost the city $15,000.
