Free Wi-Fi for Students

The Barrow County School System and Barrow County Chamber of Commerce have partnered to create a Free Wi-Fi Directory for students. This online directory provides a list of free Wi-Fi hotspots, sponsored by organizations and businesses in Barrow County. If you are a business owner and want to provide internet access to BCSS students and their families, please CLICK HERE to add your business to our Wi-Fi directory. We will send you a decal (graphic above) to display in a prominent location at your business.
