From June 27 to September 7, Boingo Wireless and Google Offers is bringing free WiFi to over 200 locations in New York City. This is the first stage of a large roll out strategy by Boingo. Over the course of one year they intend to bring WiFi to approximately 36 stations, including Times Square, Rockefeller Center and Columbus Circle. In the next five years, they anticipate having WiFi available in all 270 stations, which has potential to reach 1.6 billion passengers annually! With hotspots covering the city, it will be interesting to follow the prevalence of mobile apps in the lifestyles of NYC residents.
