Our roving Wi-Fi reporter, Klaus Ernst, has checked out the Times Square area again looking for CBSMobileZone hotspots that were online (though barely functional) a few months ago. Here’s his report:
when trying to connect at a CBSMobileZone lately I keep getting redirected to:
no aptilo terms of service page coming up. Also the “cbsmobilezone.com” Website is gone. Could be accessed from anywhere not just their hotspots.
Right by CBS on Sixth Av I caught a good one: upper case and lower case. Was always like that. My guess is that the lower case was their tryout and they never corrected it.
The last time I was able to connect to CBSMobileZone was on Nov. 28 (Subway entrance 7th Av and 53 St) I checked the stats from an email I sent from there. The hotspots have definitely something to do with Verizon:
from [10.128.6.248] (pool-71-167-227-24.nycmny.east.verizon.net[188.8.131.52])
So is CBSMobileZone history? Have you heard anything?
So, has anyone heard anything about CBSMobileZone? Is it in fact quietly shut down?
