Pixelpurchase: Support FREE WIND and SOLAR Powered WiFi - Wireless in NYC Parks and Green Spaces

Support FREE WIND and SOLAR Powered WiFi - Wireless in NYC Parks and Green Spaces
The GREENlined for WiFi!* project seeks to raise $250,000 (US) by selling 1,000,000 pixels for $0.25 each. The funds raised will be applied toward operating expenses and the next phase of upgrading, building and operating a growing Wireless Metropolitain Area Network across the rooftops of NYC, Brooklyn, and Queens, to add SOLAR and WIND systems to power the network, and to provide FREE WiFi to parks and open spaces.

WiFi-NY started the GREENLINED for WiFi!* project to upgrade service and extend its reach to underserved areas such as Williamsburg, Bushwick, Bedford Stuyvesant, and to support extended FREE WiFi services across the entire network. Your contributions will enable us to purchase the energy and network technology and the high-speed internet connectivity required to achieve the goals set forth by this project.

Presently, WiFI-NY provides affordable wireless broadband service to homes and businesses in Manhattan's East Village, Lower East Side, and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. WiFi-NY and its subscribers also sponsor limited free public access across its entire network including Tompkins Square Park, La Plaza Cultural Garden, The Earth People Garden, Open Road Park, De Colores Yard Garden, 9 CD Garden, ABC Playground. Help us meet our goal to install a permanent link to McCarren Park in Williamsburg, and to install SOLAR and WIND power and purchase more bandwidth and Internet connectivity using high-speed Free Space Laser Optics and Gigabit RF.
