The University of Maine system is working to expand WiFi coverage in the state to help those who don’t have internet access at home.

More than 140 WiFi networks in K-12 schools, Libraries, and on University campuses have been adjusted to allow public access.

They’re calling it Study-From-Car WiFi.

People will be able to drive up and park near a building with a free WiFi hotspot, then hook up to it.

Jeff Letourneau, executive director of NetworkMaine, says the effort is a stopgap, and not a perfect solution.

"It's not the best environment to learn in, being in your car, but it's a heck of a lot better than being left totally out."

More hotspots are being added every day.
