CBS Outdoor Announce Times Square WiFi Hot Spot

Billboard owner CBS Outdoor is announcing a partnership with the MTA that will create a mid-town wide wi-fi hotspot covering most of Times Square.
CBS Corporation announced today that it will "light up" midtown Manhattan with the creation of the"CBS Mobile Zone," a wireless high-speed network enabling New Yorkers with Wi-Fi-enabled cell phones, laptops or other devices to access the Internet for free, and make voice over internet (VOI) calls. The Wi-Fi Hot Zone,which is available today in certain areas, will be fully operational on by month's end with a footprint of more than 20 city blocks from Times Square to Central Park South and from 6th Avenue to 8th Avenue. This initiative is part of a 6-month pilot program with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and New York City Transit to test the potential communications capabilities of Wi-Fi technology.
