Large outdoor areas on the King Street corridor in Old Town Alexandria, from Washington Street to the City Marina, are now optimal for free outdoor wireless use thanks to Wireless Alexandria.
The outdoor coverage is the largest of its kind in the region.
The signal is also available for some distance in all directions depending on building locations and other conditions.
Wireless Alexandria is a great draw for residents and tourists alike. Whether sitting in a sidewalk cafe or lounging in a shady nook on the waterfront, the ability to stay in touch or work while distant from a home network is just one more great reason for living in Alexandria.
As with all good things there is a warning – the network is not secured and any sensitive personal or financial information sent across the network will not be encrypted.
And if it’s raining? Head for Old Town’s Queen Street Library – or any of Alexandria’s other public libraries – for their free wireless.
