Shelly Palmer Radio Report – July 26, 2013

New York City will soon be more connected than ever before. Mayor Bloomberg is continuing to bring internet connectivity to every part of the city, with his eye currently set on public parks. Last week, the city of New York announced it is teaming up with Cablevision and Time Warner to bring Wi-Fi hotspots to 32 parks across the five boroughs. Cablevision and Time Warner subscribers get the most out of this deal – they’ll get unlimited free access to these hotspots whenever they’d like. If you’re not one of those companies’ customers, you’re not left in the dark. Non-subscribers still get 30 minutes of connectivity every 30 days or, if you’ve used up your monthly allotment already, you can get access to the hotspots for 99 cents per day. Wondering whether your favorite park is now equipped with Wi-Fi? A complete list of Wi-Fi enabled parks can be found, with even more locations expected to receive Wi-Fi in the near future.
