Be Free!

I can’t enjoy it today, but apparently there is free wifi in Dupont Circle now.

District-based TechAssist says they are providing free wireless Internet access inside park and the coverage may work on surrounding blocks. The $10,000 project is sponsored by Allied Telecom Group, Jurys Doyle Hotels and the Koltun and King law firm, and oddly, TechAssist does not have plans to make up that cost by using advertising on its Web site.

If you’re in Dupont Circle, do a wifi scan and tell me whatcha find. I’d love to hear how fast and open the connection is, and if my dreams of posting to dc.metblogs from the Dupont Circle of Life can really come true.

    Here’s the site, apparently you just need to search for the “FreeDupontWireless” WLAN.

    Not yet, but the website says they only have 3MB bandwidth. I’ll probably be down there this afternoon and check it out.
