Hi, NYC Mesh is helping to build a community owned wifi network in NY state. Mostly our members are sharing their existing internet connections and soon we’ll have our own gateway at an internet exchange point.

Our biggest challenge so far is getting our antennas on the tallest buildings in each neighborhood. These are often church steeples, NYCHA buildings or new towers. If anyone can help with getting roof rights let us know. Thanks!
