Unlimited Wireless Access


Wireless Shadyside is a free wireless internet network for the Shadyside retail district in Pittsburgh,PA. The network is donated by Shadyside Inn Suites in honor of late co-founder R. Jeffery Plesset. The network covers Walnut Street from Aiken Avenue to S.Negley Avenue and parts of Ellsworth Ave.


Wireless Shadyside consists of 31 mesh networking nodes connected to one 3.0/768k DSL connection and one 6.0/768k Cable Modem connection.  These connections serve as the backbone of the Walnut Street network.  Thanks to Crazy Mocha, Capristo Salon, and Bites & Brews the Ellsworth Ave network is beginning to take shape. These three locations now serve as nodes for the network with more locations on Ellsworth coming soon.
