About Queensbridge Connected

Queensbridge Connected is a project to provide the 7,000 residents of the Queensbridge Houses with free high-speed Wi-Fi service for three years. Residents have free Wi-Fi in their apartments, and in common areas throughout the development, as well as an onsite customer care office, public computer centers, and digital literacy training programs.

The project is managed by the New York City Mayor’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer, and implemented in partnership with Spot On Networks, the New York City Housing Authority, the New York City Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications, the New York City Department for the Aging, Older Adults Technology Services, and the Queens Public Library.

The Queensbridge Connected website provides information about the program, and serves as a central source for news, local resources, programs and tools for people living in the Queensbridge Houses. Queensbridge Houses residents and community members helped plan this website. This site is safe and secure.
