AT&T Expands its Wi-Fi Service in NYC

AT&T is expanding its popular, free "Wi-Fi in the Parks" service in NYC. The latest location is Harlem's Rucker Park -- the 22nd New York City park with free AT&T Wi-Fi service. Parks visitors have made more than 2.7 million total connections, averaging more than 10,000 connections per day, since AT&T and the Bloomberg Administration launched the program last June.

Over the next several months, AT&T expects to complete installation at a total of 26 park locations, where any smartphone and tablet user regardless of carrier can connect to the AT&T Wi-Fi Network.

"It's great that Wi-Fi in the Parks continues to grow and see just how much New Yorkers and other park visitors are using this free service," said AT&T Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson. "AT&T is committed to providing the most accessible and reliable network, whether at home, at work or, in cooperation with Mayor Bloomberg, throughout New York City's beautiful parks."
