29 Dec 2010

AT&T will expand Wi-Fi coverage for wireless broadband users in New York as well as introducing its first outdoor public hotspots in San Francisco, the Associated Press reports. AT&T’s ‘hot zone’ public hotspots involve clustering many access points to blanket large, outdoor public areas with Wi-Fi coverage. Specifically, AT&T will expand Wi-Fi coverage in New York’s Times Square, and add hotspots in the Embarcadero waterfront district in San Francisco. According to AT&T CTO John Donovan, AT&T will also set up hot zones near the Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, with plans to further expand Wi-Fi coverage in the future, especially in sports stadiums.
