NoMa Launches Free Public WiFi

Further proof that the east side of the city is the place to be: the NoMa BID announced today that it is the first DC neighborhood to offer free WiFi access in its public spaces. “The NoMa Business Improvement District is providing free wireless Internet connection along many of NoMa’s sidewalks to encourage creativity and collaboration for NoMa residents, employees and visitors.” The BID is eager for feedback, especially on areas where the WiFi isn’t working properly, so if you have input feel free to reach out to them at 1-877-495-9434 or via email at NoMaWiFi@sky-packets.com. They are phasing in the WiFi slowly; the beta phase is now in operation, and the full expansion will be rolled out throughout 2014. Here’s a map of the current coverage area (red) and planned future coverage areas (green).
