The NoMa Harris Teeter.
NoMa visitors and residents just got access to free WiFi in the neighborhood, the NoMa Business Improvement District announced on Wednesday.
In areas where the WiFi connection is available, users just select “NoMa Connected” from the drop-down list of available WiFi networks and agree to terms and conditions. After that, they’ll be online.
The BID’s president, Robin-Eve Jasper, said the move came as part of an effort to make the neighborhood more tech-friendly.
“The NoMa BID is constantly working to improve NoMa’s public spaces and create a more connected community for neighborhood residents, employees and visitors,” she said in a news release. “We think the outdoor WiFi system will be a great complement for NoMa parks as they are developed.”
Here’s a map of where the WiFi will be available:
The BID is hoping users will let them know where the WiFi works and how well it’s working. They plan to roll out more WiFi connectivity in stages. The news release proudly calls it the “first neighborhood in Washington, D.C., to offer free outdoor WiFi,” though some neighborhoods have attempted more grassroots movements in the past. Bloomingdale, for example, rolled out a small, user-based WiFi network in 2010, though it didn’t last.
