The Wall Street Journal on July 19 featured an article titled “Testing Out Wi-Fi Hot Spots”, in which Annelena Lobb puts a number of hotspot providers in New York City to the test. While she mostly had success with all of the hotspots she tried out, one in particular stood out:
But a number of our Wi-Fi experiences were pleasant. In the city’s Bryant Park, which has free Wi-Fi, the service worked seamlessly.
While NYCwireless no longer runs the Bryant Park hotspot, we sure did build it, and it still operates as flawlessly and with the same equipment as it did 3 years ago when we lit up Bryant Park.
This is a great testament to the knowledge and value of Community Wireless Networks in general, and NYCwireless in particular!
