Time Warner Cable Wi-Fi Network Tops 100K Hotspots

Time Warner Cable (TWC) now has over 100,000 Wi-Fi hotspots in its national Wi-Fi network.  Through the Cable WiFi partnership, TWC Internet customers now have access to more than 400,000 hotspots.

The latest cities to gain outdoor Wi-Fi coverage on the TWC national network are Dallas and San Antonio, Texas and Raleigh, North Carolina.

“In today’s highly mobile world, one of the biggest benefits of being a TWC Internet customer is access to free WiFi throughout the U.S.,” said Rob Cerbone, VP of Wireless Product Management for Time Warner Cable. “We’re growing our network every day and helping customers stay connected to what matters to them most by offering superfast broadband Internet speeds whether they are at home or away. Most importantly, our customers are noticing. Last year, TWC Internet customers engaged in more than 180 million WiFi sessions on our network, a 327% increase over the previous year.”

TWC Internet customers also can enjoy free WiFi access at more than 100 premium Boingo locations, including 25 of the busiest airports in the U.S., as a result of bilateral roaming announced by the companies last year. Nearly all of the TWC WiFi Hotspots as well as the Boingo locations are Passpoint-enabled so that customers can securely roam and seamlessly connect to the TWC WiFi-Passpoint and Boingo “Passpoint Secure” networks.
