All Set!

Thank you for using City of San José’s outdoor wireless network. Our goal is to give residents and visitors an enjoyable online service. Please keep in mind that:

  • Network map coverage is approximate - weaker coverage may exists in some areas due to streetscape and interference.
  • User experience will vary depending upon the client device (phone, tablet, laptop) and distance from Wi-Fi Access Point.
  • Frequencies used are unlicensed so interference from neighboring networks and other radio sources may occur and impact your service.
  • This Free Wi-Fi network was designed for outdoor coverage - indoor connectivity is not guaranteed.
  • Bandwidth and Internet usage is a free and shared service. There could be delays in downloading large files, especially during high-use periods of the day.

The City of San José is proud to partner with East Side Union High School District and SmartWAVE to offer this service to residents and visitors. Learn more about SJ Access, the City’s digital inclusion initiative.
