The Queen Street West Business Improvement Association (BIA) is set to install free public Wi-Fi in the iconic Toronto neighbourhood in an effort to revamp and boost local businesses.
Great. Now I don't have to socialize with anyone on my way to work.

The move is part of a collective effort to modernize Queen West’s reputation by including more of an online presence. “We think it’s a reboot to come into the modern era,” Vice Chair of the Queen Street West BIA explained according to CBC News. The BIA also hopes this will aid tourists in navigating the area and finding local landmarks and businesses.
The service is set to be available in spring of 2019.
