D.C.’s NoMa this week unveiled a new amenity it hopes will cement its reputation as the place to be for D.C. residents: a free public outdoor WiFi network.
According to NoMa BID officials, NoMa is the first D.C. neighborhood to offer such an amenity. Click here to see a map of the areas in the neighborhood where free Wi-Fi will be available.
National Public Radio and Google, are among the companies that have offices in the roughly 35-block area north of Massachusetts Avenue and east of Union Station. The neighborhood also is home to new high rise apartments that have brought scores of new residents to the area. (At one point there were rumors that The Washington Post would relocate its newsroom to the neighborhood, though it looks like we’ll be staying downtown.)
A FAQ about the system, which will be installed in phases, is available here.
