NY City Council Hearing: Oversight – Internet Access in New York City Public Parks

The NY City Council is holding a oversight hearing on the state and plans for Wi-Fi in NY City Parks (a subject near and dear to my heart). NYCwireless will be there testifying and promoting our vision to bring real Free Wi-Fi to City Parks (not this “free for 30 minutes a month” stuff). I’m sure the City Council would love to hear from residents as well, so if you are able to testify, please let us know. If not, come out to the hearing anyway to show your support for our cause!

Please be advised that the Committee on Technology jointly with the Committee on Parks and Recreation will hold a hearing on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. in the 16th Floor Committee Room, 250 Broadway, New York, NY regarding the above-referred topic.

You are hereby invited to attend this hearing and testify therein.  Please feel free to bring with you such members of your staff you deem appropriate to the subject matter.

If you plan to participate, it would be greatly appreciated if you could bring twenty (20) copies double-sided of your written testimony to the hearing.  Due to increased building security procedures, please bring identification & allot some extra time for entry through the building lobby.

I would appreciate receiving a response from you as to whether or not you will be able to attend. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely,

Gary Altman
Legislative Counsel
