POUGHKEEPSIE COMMUNITY WIFI PROJECT (PKCW)
Nubian Directions II Inc., a long standing local not-for-profit with a history of working with low-income, under-served, academically under-prepared, multi-cultural populations in the City of Poughkeepsie, continues to move forward to provide free Wi-Fi access to “unconnected” City of Poughkeepsie residents.
It is the objective goal to create a local WiFi project that is “community owned-supported”. The WiFi mesh network will aid in closing the socio-economic digital divide while building a technology inclusive community. As NDI “builds-out” and expands the PKCW WiFi mesh network in the City of Poughkeepsie, we are very mindful that we need to prepare quickly in case there is a second round of COVID-19 in the upcoming fall/winter months. NDI will continue to work with our local colleges, school district, City/County officials, CBOs/non-profits, homeowners, faith-based and civic organizations, businesses, in order to expedite the site locations and WiFi equipment installations.
Free WiFi is available at the following locations; Winnikee Avenue, Mansion St. Square Park, Malcolm X, and Pershing Avenue Park. Local city residents and Poughkeepsie City School District students can now enjoy free WiFi/internet access.
Interested parties are welcome to join us and email us for more information about serving on a volunteer WiFi committee. Contact Nubian Directions (845) 452- 8574 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
