Wireless Services

Availability

Wi-Fi Hotspot service is available in various parts of Kennewick. Look for Bentonpud on your wireless device. This is appropriate for laptop and mobile phone users as well. OWT offers daily weekly or monthly Wi-Fi access on this network.

The Franklin PUD offers a Wi-Fi network mostly along I-82 from CBC to Road 100. This is not a hotspot service however since it is a closed network. 

The Benton PUD fixed wireless network is in various parts of Kennewick mostly covering the Badger Canyon, Dallas Road, Creekstone and Canyon Lakes areas. This network uses a proprietary frequency (which is a good thing!) and so will not work with consumer hardware directly. OWT will install a small radio on your building (generally under the eaves - see a photo in the pricing section).  A new, 5 Mbps service, is available now in Benton City!

OWT does offer fixed wireless services in Prosser, WA but only for business customers. 

OWT offers some other wireless access in the Vista Field area as well.
