Pinellas County Wireless Network Information

WiFi Hotspot - For more information visit us at

Pinellas County Government now provides wireless network access to the public and County employees throughout most County buildings.

The installation of a personal wireless access point (Apple Airport Station, wireless router, etc.), or a MiFi device is highly discouraged. These devices are a security risk and will negatively impact the efficiency of the County's wireless network.

NOTE: The Pinellas County wireless network supports both 802.11g and 802.11n wireless devices. Once connected to a wireless network, you will not be using your cellular data plan. If you are out of the range of our wireless network, your phone will automatically switch back to your cellular service, thus using your cellular data plan.

I am a Pinellas County employee...

Pinellas County employees have two additional networks available depending on the device being used. These networks provide increased security to protect both personal and County data.

Employee's personal devices, such as phones and tablets, can utilize the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) wireless network. This is a secure, encrypted network. Once connected, employees will have full internet access, as well as limited access to internal enterprise resources. Employees are protected by the same web filtering enforced by their department. This network requires the employee's network username and password to gain access.
