Wireless Ypsi

The Wireless Ypsi Project brings free broadband internet access to the Ypsilanti, MI business districts and community.

This project is a cooperative effort powered by HDL.com, LLC.  By leveraging Ypsilanti’s community infrastructure we have been able to partner with businesses, community organizations, government and individuals in order to help further the primary goal of the WY Project:

#1 Goal – To bridge the digital divide by helping everyone who visits or resides in the City of Ypsilanti gain access to the Internet.
 

HDL.com, LLC is using an affordable way to implement this scalable network, which could eventually service the nearly 20,000 residents of Ypsilanti. The network is built on a sustainable model that will allow for relatively simple maintenance and encourage its expansion and growth. The system applies the latest wireless mesh networks that share high-speed internet bandwidth.

COMMUNITY IMPACT
Since its launch in January 2008, the Wireless Ypsi Project has impacted the Ypsilanti community in that it:

  • Creates a richer sense of community in Ypsilanti by encouraging groups to work toward a common goal and giving them a tool to connect.
  • Aides in economic development by helping to attract and retain businesses.
  • Creates the wireless infrastructure needed to attract and retain young professionals as residents and visitors.
  • Reduces the digital divide by helping everyone gain access to high-speed broadband service.
  • Facilitates wireless technology use for citizens and visitors.
  • Does all this without being a burden on taxpayers.
