Washington, DC – In cooperation with Urban Investment Partners (UIP),,, DC Access is now providing Wireless Internet to The Shelburne, a 63-unit boutique-style apartment building located at 1631 S Street NW in the Dupont Circle neighborhood.

“Our services are a great fit for apartment buildings, and we’re excited to be working with UIP to provide local, affordable Wireless Internet to their residents,” says Martha Huizenga, partner at DC Access. “Plus, our partnership with UIP is allowing us to reach new subscribers by expanding into the Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan neighborhoods.”
