OAK WiFi - A Small Step to Closing the Digital Divide

OAK WiFi provides free internet to Oaklanders to help close the digital divide.

About OAK WiFi

94,000 residents in Oakland currently don't have access to the internet. OAK WiFi is an initiative that provides free internet access for students, seniors, job seekers, small businesses, the underserved, and unconnected. Learn more about our #OaklandUndivided initiative to close the digital divide below.

OAK WiFi Coverage Area

OAK WiFi already has live hotspots throughout the City; this initiative will greatly expand the coverage to parts of West Oakland, Downtown Oakland, and East Oakland along the International Blvd corridor to the San Leandro border. The first zones (1, 2, & 18), located in West Oakland, Downtown, and Uptown, using existing fiber, will begin coming online starting in mid-November 2020. The remaining Zones (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, & 13) will come online as they are completed shortly thereafter.
