Access to high-speed Internet is crucial for learning, working, socializing, and accessing important services. The COVID-19 pandemic has shuttered libraries, coffee shops, community centers, and other public places that generally offer free Wi-Fi.


Children and families need – and deserve – reliable, high-speed Wi-Fi as soon as possible.


With ONE Neighborhood Connects: Community Wi-Fi, we will create a mesh Wi-Fi network that will cover 5,000,000 square feet of Olneyville (about half the whole neighborhood and roughly two-thirds of all neighborhood residents!).

This project will cost $200,000 to purchase and install the necessary equipment that has a shelf-life of at least five years.
