FAQ

What is the purpose of WiredNYC?

WiredNYC is a platform for landlords to share information about broadband with potential tenants. Landlords can market their buildings to tenants who rely on high-speed connectivity, and tenants can use this information to find buildings that meet their telecommunications needs.


Is participation in WiredNYC mandatory for landlords?

No. Participating landlords voluntarily provide information about the broadband in their buildings by taking a survey on the WiredNYC website.


What if the buildings I am interested in are not yet participating?

Once you create an account, you can set alerts targeting the buildings and neighborhoods you are interested in learning more about. We will email you whenever we post data that meets your interests.


How do you confirm the accuracy of the WiredNYC data?

Buildings that receive Wired Certifications undergo a thorough building audit by a team of technicians to validate accuracy and completeness. Data displayed for non-certified buildings is not validated.

Wired Certification is an official set of standards developed and approved by an NYCEDC-appointed Advisory Board for assessing internet services in NYC buildings
