AT&T today announced (http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=4800&cdvn=news&newsarticleid=30838) that it is rolling out a large new Wi-Fi hotspot in New York City's busy Times Square, offering users of the company's congested cellular networks a new option for routing traffic in the area.AT&T today announced the launch of an AT&T Wi-Fi "hotzone" in New York City's bustling Times Square, providing coverage for many AT&T customers visiting and residing in New York who use Wi-Fi enabled smartphones, laptops, netbooks and other devices. The new Wi-Fi coverage zone is a pilot deployment to explore the use of Wi-Fi to provide an additional mobile broadband option in areas with consistently high 3G traffic and mobile data use.The press release notes that coverage is generally available in the north central portion of Times Square, near 7th Avenue between West 45th and West 47th Streets.

Access to the Wi-Fi hotspot is available free of charge to nearly 32 million AT&T customers with qualifying phone, laptop, or high-speed Internet plans.With this pilot AT&T Wi-Fi hotzone, we're examining new ways to combine our Wi-Fi and 3G networks to help ensure that AT&T customers in Times Square always have a fast mobile broadband connection to do what matters most to them. It's another example of how AT&T is exploring the ideal blend of technologies to maximize the mobile experience for our customers in New York City.AT&T has been making major investments (http://www.macrumors.com/2009/12/09/atandt-addressing-network-performance-in-manhattan-and-san-francisco-high-bandwidth-users/) in its network infrastructure, particularly in Manhattan and San Francisco where high demand has made it difficult for the carrier to keep up. Recent studies have shown that AT&T customers have been seeing generally improved data performance (http://www.macrumors.com/2010/02/23/atandt-tops-3g-wireless-performance-study/) as a result of the company's efforts, but that voice performance (http://www.macrumors.com/iphone/2010/05/05/atandt-customers-continuing-to-experience-excessive-dropped-calls/) continues to trail that of competing carriers.

Hopefully the wifi will be fast and not have some log in thing you have to use every time you get near the area.

The article they linked to doesn't even have that logo on the page, nor does it have the word "Starbucks." I know the Starbucks in my area are not free to AT&T customers.

Why the heck are you putting that logo on the story MacRumors? It has nothing to do with it.

It is actually an image from the AT&T wifi page (http://www.att.com/gen/general?pid=5949). It is the second image of three in that box thing.

The * means= "Wi-Fi at Starbucks available at U.S. company-operated Starbucks locations equipped with a hotspot."

Use VoIP. Allow VoIP. Make it the default option.

When wifi came out the open hacker community was suggesting Pringle's can antennas to provide free wifi within 300 feet of each and every broadband connection on the basis that if everyone did it nobody could be enforced against for sharing their connection.

Maybe it is time to amend the ISP TOS to simply allow free wifi sharing.

It will slightly harm each connection but overall help us globally.

If they don't edit the TOS, a Pringle's can wifi antenna costs about $10 in parts and has no way to be enforced against. Either omnidirectional or directional are very easy indeed.

Since you're the one who posted a snide remark that is completely irrelevant to the topic of the thread, the sensitive nerve is yours. Given your bathroom remark, it's clear you have a chip on your shoulder about inappropriate cellphone use and you go out of your way to shoot off snide remarks at anyone who you perceive breaches your code of conduct, no matter how little you actually know about the situation. I have zero patience for self-appointed nannies who scold and wag their fingers at others, especially when it's borne out of a complete ignorance of the circumstances. The bus had four people on it, including myself and the driver. Everyone was spaced far apart from each other and no one was disturbed by anyone else. But hey, I wouldn't want facts and details to get in the way of you making assumptions and leaping to conclusions about situations and people you have no knowledge of.

A comment like yours - which as I pointed out before, was completely off-topic to this thread - deserves a forceful response. You waltz into this thread that has no relevance to you, read a post that wasn't directed at you and take a potshot at me because you assumed - wrongly - the worst. When I punch back, you're shocked, shocked! at the response. Your faux surprise and insincerity isn't going to win you any Oscars. And how completely in character of you to stereotype a city of 7 million individuals.

FYI, because of the traffic, empty buses are a common sight because buses in NYC often bunch up so that a trailing bus ends up largely empty as the lead bus picks up all the riders. My bus emptied out at the preceding stop on 50th and 7th Ave because that stop is centrally located to the many office buildings nearby, where most riders at that hour are headed. But you wouldn't know any of this since you weren't there, you don't know the city or the bus line and couldn't be bothered to ask. It's easy and lazy for you criticize people for what you imagine their behavior to be than to ask what happened.

It's only free to iPhone and other at&t customers on their phones. Do you really think AT&T would invest in a wifi hotspot for non customers? Have you ever gone into a star bucks and checked your iPhone? It automatically switches to wifi in star bucks. Just like it will in the times sq hotspot.

I'm guessing you're unfamiliar with the concept of "Social Compact".

I am familiar with the social compact/contract theory. But it still boils down to society's social norms. And yes, talking on a cellular device in a quiet building or enclosed space with other people is "frowned" upon by a large portion of society, but I'm part of the group that does not care if someone is talking on the phone as long as they aren't loud. I like to eavesdrop.

Data service in midtown is virtually unusable. Nice start, but I don't think covering 4 blocks with wifi is helping much.

The financial district and TriBeCa are equally as bad. And the service in Brooklyn gets worse every month. AT&T just can't keep up with the pace of Apple's growth here.

...a city of 7 million individuals...

I don't think talking quietly on your phone on the bus is at all disturbing, annoying, or abrasive. I don't think it's much different then having a quiet conversation with a friend you might be sitting next to. But some people like to make a big deal of it, give indignant looks of disbelief, and go "hmph!" She strikes me as one of those people.

This is the beginning of total rip off of consumers. Putting a price point on data at this level is going to be trouble. What do you think?

There are countless threads about that actual topic. Post in one of those threads.

You can start a thread, but you just don't know how to (go to the forum you want to post in, and in the top left there is a 'New Thread' button). But do us all a favor: don't start a new thread about that- there are already enough threads about it.

Thanks for the info. Do know how to start threads but the forum I tried iphones would not let me. Maybe my problem or sites. I also searched for threads and didn't find one. Sorry will try again.

ok then dont use the wifi. o and new york is the only place with a prob cause of traffic. im pretty sure new york isnt the only place people live.

That's what I'm starting to think. You have New York, and then you have "Those other people". How about some 3G coverage out in our area?

IPhone 4: will AT&T offer a 4g network as Sprint has done? If so will the iPhone 4 be able to access the 4g network? Would it be a software upgrade or a “New iPhone” upgrade?
