BETHPAGE, N.Y. -- Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE: CVC) today announced that it has successfully deployed Optimum WiFi wireless Internet access in New York’s Rockland and Orange Counties, as a free enhancement for its Optimum Online high-speed Internet customers. The newly activated areas – which are focused on the places where people shop, dine, commute and meet – cover municipalities such as: Nanuet, New City, Nyack, Pearl River, Spring Valley, Suffern, Central Valley, Greenwood Lake, Harriman, Monroe, Tuxedo, Warwick, and Woodbury. The service is also available at New Jersey Transit train station platforms and parking lots, including: Harriman, Nanuet, Pearl River, Sloatsburg, Spring Valley, Suffern, and Tuxedo.

Optimum WiFi spans thousands of access points, and offers wireless Internet capability across the company’s New York, New Jersey and Connecticut service areas. In addition to Rockland and Orange Counties, Optimum WiFi is broadly available across Westchester, Bergen, and Passaic counties, and on hundreds of commuter rail platforms and station parking lots across New Jersey Transit, Metro North, and the Long Island Railroad.

“Unlike many expensive cell phone data plans that can cost upwards of $100 per month, Optimum WiFi is free and more than twice as fast as many cellular networks,” said Kevin Curran, Cablevision’s senior vice president of wireless product development. “Now, Optimum Online customers in Rockland and Orange counties have unfettered access to the nation’s largest and most advanced WiFi network in downtown areas, near parks, and at train stations.”
