    From WKBW Channel 7 in Buffalo:

    The Niagara Global Tourism Institute (NGTI) has asked the city of Niagara Falls for $50,000 to create three blocks of public WIFI between the Seneca Niagara Casino and Niagara Falls State Park on Old Falls Street.

    The purpose of the WIFI is to help tourists avoid the “roaming” charges that sometimes happen with phones that are close to Canada, and to also encourage tourists to expand their trip outside of the State Park.

    A new home for technology development and job training in the tourism industry has taken root in the downtown tourism district.

    The Niagara Global Tourism Institute, once fully up and running, also will serve as a research hub and business incubator aimed at boosting tourism in Niagara Falls.

    “Niagara Falls today is not the Niagara Falls it was 10 years ago and is not the Niagara Falls it’s going to be 10 years from now,” said Eddie Friel, director of the institute, which opened its doors last month.
