Starting Tuesday November 10th free WiFi is available between 43rd and 44th streets due to a partnership between Yahoo and the Times Square Alliance.
The exact location of the Internet zone is by the pedestrian plaza where the “TKTS” discount booth is.
When the WiFi connection first went up on November 10th users were greeted with a free hot cup of coffee. Surrounding apartments in the area also are reaping the benefits of free Internet access.
In this WiFi zone passerbyers can even borrow laptops on a “first come, first serve,” basis according to the press release. The wireless Internet is also accessible to those on phones by clicking the “get started” button that leads to Internet set-up instructions.
The duration of this promotion is unknown, especially after free WiFi in central park ended in 2008 unannounced, two years after it was instated and seemingly with no replacement.
For now New York and its tourists are enjoying free Internet in the plaza due to Yahoo. Yahoo rival, Google is providing free WiFi connections in 47 airports through January 15.
