Nonprofit offers inaugural wireless: "A local nonprofit has installed an outdoor wireless fidelity, or wi-fi, system along Pennsylvania Avenue and will provide the wireless Internet connections free.
"The Open Park Project, a group that's working to bring wi-fi services to the National Mall, says it has installed a carrier grade hot spot for wi-fi services that cover Pershing Park on the north side of Pennsylvania Avenue between 14th and 15th streets. Some service is also available at Freedom Plaza and the northeastern corner of the Ellipse.
"The free service will remain up and running through Jan. 22."
