AT&T intends to blanket up to 20 of New York City’s parks with Wi-Fi connectivity – not that we’re complaining, of course, but hopefully what AT&T has in store will be able to work as promised or intended. Currently, there are people who have experienced AT&T’s Wi-Fi networks, and somehow it isn’t exactly up to expectations, but then again humans can be a difficult bunch to please, no? All we need now is for someone to come up with a highly efficient portable solar powered adapter that will juice up your notebooks, netbooks and tablets, and you can more or less experience a truly wireless lifestyle, remaining connected at all times – even when you’re sitting in a park, surrounded by lush greenery to get away from the concrete jungle if but for a while.
Mayor Bloomberg and AT&T big gun Randall Stephenson will work together to make sure that the five year plan to deliver free Wi-Fi connectivity at 26 locations in 20 New York City parks across five boroughs will come to fruition. At point of publishing, free AT&T Wi-Fi is available at Battery Bosque in Battery Park.
