PARSONS announces start of WI-FI service on SEATTLE/BREMERTON ferry run
PASADENA, CA .– Parsons, in conjunction with Washington State Ferries, is pleased to announce that Wi-Fi service commenced on the Seattle/Bremerton route. The service spans the entire ferry route through Rich Passage and across Puget Sound.
“Providing consistent signal strength across this 15.6-mile stretch of Puget Sound has proven to be a real technological challenge, but with a significant investment in equipment that has created ten new shoreline access points, we are now providing a robust signal from dock to dock on the Bremerton runs,” said Bob Davis, Parsons Vice President. “We’re also pleased to note that the Seattle/Bainbridge route received Wi-Fi transmission upgrades during the latest phase of service improvement.”
Parsons is offering one week of free Wi-Fi service to commuters who sign up to take a short survey on Wi-Fi use and preferences. Interested ferry riders can sign up at www.wsf-wifi.com.
Washington State Ferries’ Wi-Fi has become the largest commercial, over-the-water Wi-Fi system in the world. Routes include Edmonds/Kingston, Mukilteo/Clinton, the newly improved Seattle/Bainbridge route, plus the new Seattle/Bremerton route. Parsons plans to add the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth run before the end of January with signal feeds from the route’s three terminals plus five shoreline feed points.
