NoMa’s free outdoor Wi-Fi network has expanded to portions of H and North Capitol streets NW, the NoMa Business Improvement District announced yesterday. It also now includes Storey Park at 1st and L streets NE., home of the NoMa Summer Screen outdoor movie series.

On H Street NW, the network extends from North Capitol Street NW to 1st Street NW. It now also travels from H Street NW to G Place NW on North Capitol Street NW, according to the NoMa BID.

Overall, the network provides free Wi-Fi for 20 blocks in NoMa in an area west of the train tracks and south of New York Avenue NE. The network ultimately will cover all of the neighborhood, according to NoMa BID plans.

Since the NoMa BID launched the network last year, it has hosted more than 15,000 unique visitors who log into “NoMa Connected,” with an average of 150 users per day, according to the community group.
