More than 1,700 of the public hotspots are located in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island and the company plans to add up to 10,000 more spots across New York City by the end of the year.

“We’re thrilled to officially launch TWC Wi-Fi in New York City, just in time for MLB All-Star Week, when millions of fans will be here to support their teams. By offering free access during the event, they can sample the service to conveniently check scores and stats using TWC Wi-Fi hotspots around the city,” said Mike Roudi, senior vice president of corporate development.
