DC’s only locally based WiFi provider adds Arlington and Alexandria to its service area

Washington, DC – DC Access has acquired the Northern Virginia portion of an established Internet Service Provider (ISP) with service at eight multitenant and commercial buildings in Arlington and Alexandria, VA.

DC Access will take its unique brand of local, friendly Internet service to customers gained during this strategic acquisition, with plans to expand the business to serve additional customers in Northern Virginia neighborhoods.

This year marks the 15th anniversary of DC Access, which already provides Wireless Internet (WiFi) to more than 1,000 residential and commercial customers in the District of Columbia. In addition to being DC’s only locally owned WiFi provider, the company offers digital living consultation and design.

DC Access is owned and operated by the husband-and-wife team of Matt Wade and Martha Huizenga.

“Our top priority has always been to provide personalized service to all of our customers,” Huizenga said. “We will maintain our commitment to outstanding service as we welcome these new locations and customers to the DC Access family.”

In 2012, after 13 years of running DC Access out of their home on Capitol Hill, Wade and Huizenga purchased a building a few blocks away at 1504 Pennsylvania SE in order to provide office space for their growing company, which currently has six employees.

“As we celebrate 15 years of doing business, it’s very rewarding to trace the path from being a small start-up, to being able to move into our office space and provide good jobs,” Wade said. “This acquisition is the next step in our evolution, and we look forward to establishing a presence in Arlington and Alexandria.”
