Crystal City Gets Outdoor Wi-Fi

(Updated at 9:35 a.m.) Imagine taking your laptop to the Crystal City water park and getting work down while enjoying a crisp fall day. If not for the rain, you could be doing just that.

Crystal City is just finishing up an expansion and upgrade to its free public Wi-Fi network, which is available in many of the neighborhood’s public spaces.

The service is available under the SSID “Crystal City Beta.” See a map of the hotspots here.
