City WIFI Internet
The City of Granbury has deployed a TROPOS wireless mesh network over approximately 10 square miles of the incorporated city limits. This wireless network provides City workers access to the resources they need to be better equipped to provide services to our citizens. This network also allows our citizens access to broadband speed Internet service. We offer several plans ranging from daily rates for our visitors at $5.95/day to monthly subscription plans for long term use at $19.95/month for one computer and $29.95/month for up to 5 computers. Monthly plans are a recurring charge and must be canceled by calling the Information Technology Department at the number listed below. The unique aspect of this service is that you are not restricted to a specific location. Once you have created an account you can use this service from anywhere in the city that it is available.
To connect to our service simply select "citywifi" from your available wireless networks. Once you are connected simply open your Internet browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox) and our sign up splash page will appear. The sign up for service link is located on the bottom left of the page. This link will take you through the process of setting up a userid and password as well as selecting which service plan best suits your needs.
If you are able to connect to the "citywifi" network but have a weak signal and are unable to browse the web a wireless repeater is available. This installs at your premises and pulls in the weak signal and then rebroadcasts that signal so that a reliable connection can be made within your building. These units are sold for $60.00 and are available by calling our IT Department. If you terminate your service these units are purchased back at the current rate of $50.00. If you are unable to connect to the "citywifi" network call us and let us come by and do a site evaluation.
If you have have questions about our service please call our Information Technology Department at 817-573-1114 X1159 between 8 AM or 5 PM or email us at
