Cablevision gears up for Wi-Fi launch

4 Aug 2008

The US cable operator Cablevision Systems says it intends to launch its Wi-Fi networks in parts of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut within the next few months. The USD300 million network will offer free wireless internet access to Cablevision’s existing Optimum Online fixed broadband subscribers. The initial focus will be on internet access, Cablevision says, though it eventually plans to introduce voice and video services over the new Wi-Fi system.
