Wireless Harlem’s mission is to “close the digital divide in Harlem by making access to information ubiquitous for all of its residents.” Its objectives:

  • Become innovation testing resource for new wireless broadband applications

Wireless Harlem and NYCwireless share many goals and objectives, and we are working together to help bring Wi-Fi to New York City.

WiFi Hotspot Survey — I Need Your Feedback
