The Columbia Heights Community Wireless Network (CHCWN) is a local wireless network organized by Columbia Heights residents. It can help you communicate with your neighbors, use local services like community TV and radio stations, and share the cost of an Internet connection. The network consists of Wi-Fi routers on rooftops that form a network supported by social relationships in the neighborhood. The network’s infrastructure is owned and shared by residents as a resource for the community.
We hope this resource will help build and narrate the stories of the community it serves!
