NEW YORK CITY -- Announced last June, Time Warner Cable has been steadily building its WiFi network in New York City and now offers more than 10,000 TWC WiFi Hotspots at no cost to Time Warner Cable customers with Standard Internet or above. Time Warner Cable continues to build out its robust network throughout the City by adding more density to existing locations and launching Hotspots in new areas.

“When we lit up our WiFi network in New York City last summer, we offered roughly 3,000 TWC WiFi Hotspots,” said John Quigley, regional vice president of operations, Time Warner Cable. “We’ve been ramping up the network ever since, focusing on adding even more free WiFi access where our customers live, play, eat and work throughout the City. With more than 10,000 active Hotspots now available, and thousands more coming this year, our customers can more readily find and connect to free TWC WiFi no matter where they are in the City.”

Among the recently launched areas are various locations along West 47th Street in the Diamond District of New York City. Michael Grumet, Executive Director of the 47th St. Business Improvement District said that being able to offer free WiFi to visitors and shoppers in the area is a great new feature adding, “I’m delighted that the 47th St. BID is partnering with Time Warner Cable to provide free WiFi service to the shoppers, visitors and businesses in the Diamond District.”

And just in time for spring, even more local parks and recreation centers in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island are now part of TWC’s expanding WiFi coverage area. The company has nearly doubled its recreation and parks WiFi locations since last summer by launching in new sites such as Juniper Valley in Middle Village, Queens, Wolfe’s Pond Park in Staten Island and the Metropolitan Recreation Center in Brooklyn.

Re: Towerstream or TWC?
I'd agree with that. No point in recreating the wheel, especially in a densely populated area like NYC.

Towerstream or TWC?
It would be interesting to see how many of these 10,000 access points are on TWC's plant or whether they are contracting with Towerstream to deliver this service.  My bet's on Towerstream for at least 90%
