Get Affordable Internet for Your Home in NYC! 

Major Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have high prices and poor service. Our network offers free-to-low-cost wifi that includes resident network ownership.

How It Works

We build mesh networks, which share web connections through a neighborhood to spread the reach of a broadband connection. 

Most mesh community members have wireless routers--“nodes”--mounted on a rooftop or balcony, to connect to other nodes, forming a network. Our network connects with many other networks at an Internet Exchange Point (IXP), an internet gateway, providing direct access to the Internet without the intermediary of an expensive commercial Internet Service Provider. 

Typically, our mesh will be connected to a primary Internet exchange point through a superior node or “Supernode”. There are other ways of connecting to the gateway, like a public wifi access point kiosk you find in NYC. By using directional routers you can extend the range of public access points very easily.
