TWC Launches 1,000 Free WiFi Spots in Manhattan for All-Star Week

MSO Also Running Baseball Food Program to Benefit Sandy Relief 7/12/2013 11:23 AM Eastern

Time Warner Cable has thrown out the first pitch on WiFi hotspots in Manhattan to coincide with MLB All-Star Week.

The MSO lit up more than 1,000 TWC WiFi hotspots throughout the borough. Moreover in its role as the “official WiFi provider” of MLB All-Star Week, highlighted by the Mid-Summer Classic at Citi Field on July 16, Time Warner Cable is offering complimentary access to its entire New York City WiFi network, now comprising some 2,700 hotspots throughout Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island.

As part of the celebration, TWC will have MLB All-Stars, Hall of Famers and other notables dishing up baseball giveaways and ballpark, regional themed food from branded food trucks during All-Star Week (see schedule below). All proceeds from the food trucks will benefit the Robin Hood Relief Fund to support those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

 “We’re excited to launch over 1,000 new TWC WiFi Hotspots in New York City as baseball fans arrive to experience this premier event, and we’re thrilled to help make that experience even better with free TWC WiFi,” said John Keib, executive vice presiden and chief care and technical operations officer for Time Warner Cable, in a statement. “We also hope to help fans Enjoy MLB All-Star Week Better while raising some much needed funds for our friends at Robin Hood Relief Fund through our Food Truck program. Fans can sample great food and free WiFi while supporting a critical need in our community.”

To access the free TWC WiFi Hotspots during MLB All-Star Week, users select the TWCWiFi network name, open the browser and accept the terms of service to get started.

Time Warner Cable said it plans to offer up to 10,000 TWC WiFi hotspots throughout New York City by year-end – available at no additional cost to customers with Standard Internet and above. Customers also can access more than 75,000 TWC WiFi hotspots across the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut at no cost.
