Local residents looking to connect to the Internet in Norwichtown are reporting that a racially offensive wireless network name has again started appearing on their phones and devices -- and it may be difficult to trace.
"Norwich N----s Go Home" was one of several network choices that were visible Monday at noon in the area of the Bank of America and McDonald's locations on Town Street.
Norwich Police Officer Joel Ethier said the incident hadn't yet been reported to police. "We'll be researching the case before we begin investigating,"
Ethier said. "I think this is disgusting." Ethier told The Bulletin that Norwich Police Department's investigation will likely involve going door to door in the area of the incident.
It's not the first time the Wi-Fi hotspot in question has appeared in the same area.
