Washington DC residents and visitors can enjoy free Wi-Fi access via outdoor and indoor hotspots throughout the District at key community anchor locations including DC public schools and public charter schools, public libraries, parks and recreation centers, senior centers, community pools, community health clinics and social service sites, public housing campuses, public safety sites, and District government administration buildings. These access points are installed and managed by the Office of the Chief Technology Officer's DC Net program: https://dcnet.dc.gov/.
In addition, DC-Net has deployed public Wi-Fi throughout the Golden Triangle area just west of the White House and on the National Mall, which has enhanced the public’s experience at July 4th celebrations, presidential inaugurations, and other major events.
All sites offer open and free WiFi access with select locations requiring approved indoor facility access. Examples of these are federal, administrative or public schools.
