Check Out Free Wi-Fi Hot Spot

In an effort to address the digital divide, the City offers free Wi-Fi hot spot rentals at the three Neighborhood Resource Centers. Hot spots are small portable devices that provide mobile Wi-Fi to up to 15 user devices. Hot spot rental guidelines are as follows:

  • A government-issued ID and proof of address are required at time of checkout.
  • Hot spot rentals are only available to Wichita residents.
  • Individuals must be 18 years or older to check out a hot spot.
  • Hot spots can be checked out for up to 14 days at a time.
  • Due to high demand, individuals must wait 24 hours (weekends not included) between returning and re-checking out a hot spot.
  • There is no wait list or system to hold the devices. The devices are checked out on a first come, first served basis.
  • Only one hot spot can be checked out to an address at any given time.
  • The devices are automatically deactivated at the conclusion of the 14-day checkout period.
  • Devices should be returned fully charged to the Neighborhood Resource Center they were checked out from.
  • A history of late returns or returning damaged or missing parts will result in a rental ban.
  • Any network or device problems should be addressed with T-Mobile Technical Support (1-844-361-1310). The Neighborhood Resource Center/City of Wichita does not provide any technical support for the hot spots.
