By the end of the year, AHC’s residents at The Spire in Alexandria will have access to free, high-speed internet in their apartments and in all communal areas of the building.
A generous $174,000 investment from Capital One is helping make this project possible. It includes equipment installation for a building-wide network, internet access through Comcast, and $25,000 to provide technical support and assistance to residents.
Each household will also receive a Chromebook computer as part of the investment. The Spire has 113 affordable apartments, including dozens of school children who live in the building.
