Welcome to the Public Online Wireless Electronic Resource!
Cox Communications, Intel and hotZona Wi-Fi introduce the first free, public Internet access network in the country – POWER – located at the Arizona State Legislature
POWER (Public Online Wireless Electronic Resource), created through a public/private partnership with Intel and Cox Communications, allows all Arizona citizens wireless Internet access at the Legislature. Wireless (WiFi) connectivity via POWER allows people to stay productive and connected on the go. Working without wires or phone jacks, people can access e-mail, do research on the Internet, and have full access to the legislature’s web site and hearing room schedules, bill text, amendments, and floor votes.

How does POWER work?
The technology behind POWER marries the large bandwidth of Cox’s fiber optic network to the Internet with “hot spots”. These inconspicuous boxes located throughout the Legislative buildings provide wireless LAN service, creating a virtual network of Internet access.
Where can POWER be used?
The public may use the free Internet access from POWER in the hearing rooms of Arizona House of Representatives and Senate, as well as the hallways outside the hearing rooms, the upper lobby of the Senate and House galleries, and nearby courtyard areas.
What do I need to access POWER?
To access the POWER hotspot, your computer must have either an internal 802.11b or 802.11a wireless PC card or integrated wireless LAN capability, as available with Intel® Centrino™ mobile technology.
