“The idea for the site came to me when we were in a bar on the Lower East Side back in early 2009,” said Alexandra Janelli, President and Founder of WTFWifi.com. “We’re waiting for our beers and I looked down at my iPhone, only to see it’d ‘cordially’ invited me to join a wireless network called ‘Alcoholics Shut In.’ The irony, and later the inspiration, were not lost, and we’ve been growing ever since.”
From that day on it became the mission of WTFwifi has been to uncover the most exemplary shout out to the funniest, most bizarre, creative and quirky wifi names in the US, Canada and wherever else WTFWifi fans take their phones.
