Dedicated, high speed wi-fi in every unit & property

Dependable, high speed wireless internet is mission critical when it comes to your time in Washington, D.C.

In this day and age, The WIHN is acutely aware of how critical a reliable, high speed wireless internet connection is to today’s interns and young professionals.

We’ve partnered with Comcast/Xfinity cable & internet services to provide our tenants with the highest speed data bundles available for residential properties.  Each unit & property comes with its own dedicated high speed cable internet connection and is only shared among 7 residents at any one time.  This leaves plenty of bandwidth for Netflix streaming, YouTube, Xbox gaming  as well as services such as AppleTV, Chromecast, Hulu+, Pandor or Spotify.

Additionally, The WIHN maintains its own tech support staff to maintain the uptime of our connections and equipment.  In short, this means no waiting days on Comcast to respond to an outage or in the rare event of equipment malfunction.


Our tech support staff has taken the liberty of preparing and running an internet speed test from one of our luxury apartment units.  The results of which have been published below.  Please note that the following speed test was performed on an HP Omni 200 PC via Wifi using the Apple Airport Extreme router with a Motorola Surfboard 8560 cable modem.
