Executive Summary

Zap Quebec is a nonprofit organization that supplies free Wi-Fi in public spaces around Quebec City, Canada. They are largely volunteer-operated, relying on only two full-time paid employees. Zap was founded in 2006 as a community service organized in response to the high cost of local connectivity. The first two years of their operations saw the installation of 35 hotspots around Quebec City; today, more than 800 of their hotspots are active in spaces available to the community at large – in privately owned businesses such as cafés, as well as government-run institutions such as administrative offices, libraries, and public parks. In the last year, roughly 1.7 million connections were made on Zap Quebec hotspots.
