As part of a two-part IT upgrade, the Galveston Island Convention Center recently added significantly more bandwidth and increased the number of access points. Bandwidth capabilities at the Galveston Island Convention Center (GICC) have been expanded to 100 MB per second. Also, 40 additional access points have been installed inside the convention center. As a result of the upgrades, the GICC is now able to host a group of 1000 people in the Grand Ballroom all downloading an application at the same time. Best of all, access to the upgraded wi-fi is completely FREE!
