The Wi-Fi NOW Awards recognizes ZenFi for both Affordable Connectivity and Best Wi-Fi Service Provider

ZenFi Networks, a BAI Communications Company, an innovative leader of digital infrastructure solutions in the New York and New Jersey metro region, announces today that the company has been shortlisted for both the “Affordable Connectivity” and “Best Wi-Fi Service Provider” awards by Wi-Fi NOW. The winners will be announced at the Wi-Fi NOW Awards Gala taking place on Monday, December 12, 2022 at 7 pm CET.

The Wi-Fi NOW Awards encourage companies that produce outstanding results in the Wi-Fi industry, or bring unique innovation to Wi-Fi startups to submit. ZenFi Networks is being considered for both the “Affordable Connectivity” and “Best Wi-Fi Service Provider” award due to the company’s various initiatives focused on social good to benefit local communities in the New York metro region. These initiatives include expanding free outdoor public Wi-Fi through its partnership in the LinkNYC program, building millions of feet of neutral fiber infrastructure to traditionally underserved neighborhoods of New York City, and delivering on its promise of being an open access infrastructure provider by enabling wholesale carriers, mobile network operators, and virtual mobile network operators access to wireless siting, fiber networks, and network edge colocation opportunities outside the core business districts of Manhattan.

Additionally in 2022, ZenFi Networks has helped officially launch the debut of three Gigabit Centers, the first being the Silicon Harlem Gigabit Center in February, one at the historical Andrew Freedman Home in the Bronx in June, as well as its Queens Gigabit Center at the Allen Community Senior Citizens Center in December. The remaining two gigabit centers, both in Brooklyn and Staten Island, will be launched in 2023. These centers are set to provide a mix of high-speed internet, technology innovation, technology training and small business development powered by the free LinkNYC public Wi-Fi network. In addition there will be digital literacy training, free access to laptops and workstations, and other services.

“Through the years, ZenFi Networks has been dedicated to providing New York and New Jersey better access and connectivity with all our initiatives. We are honored to be considered for both of these categories as we continue to work towards bridging the digital divide.” shares Ray LaChance, Co-Founder and CEO of ZenFi Networks.
