NEW YORK -- AT&T officials today launched free AT&T Wi-Fi service at Hunts Point Riverside Park with Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and the New York City Parks Department. Hunts Point Riverside Park is the third Bronx park to receive the service through the "Wi-Fi in the Parks" initiative; a collaboration between AT&T and the Bloomberg Administration to provide free Wi-Fi at 26 parks locations across the five boroughs. In addition to Wi-Fi, AT&T has made major investments in the Bronx wireless network over the past year, including the addition of LTE service and 239 network upgrades.

"AT&T is committed to providing Bronx residents and all New Yorkers creative ways to stay connected whether they're at home, at work or in Hunts Point Riverside Park," said Marissa Shorenstein, President, AT&T New York. "Through our continued efforts with the Wi-Fi in the Parks Initiative and our ongoing improvements to the network, Bronx residents now have even more ways to stay in touch with friends, families and co-workers."

"I am excited about the continued growth of the 'Wi-Fi in the Parks' initiative in the Bronx, and I welcome the expansion of this program to Hunts Point Riverside Park," said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. "I want to thank AT&T for its continued commitment to the Bronx and for improving the experience of our park visitors, who for the past year have been taking advantage of free Wi-Fi service at Devoe Park and Joyce Kilmer Park, and will now continue to enjoy the advantages of staying connected at another park in our borough."
