Google Offers, Boingo Wireless Sponsor Summer of Free Wi-Fi in NYC

Google Offers and Boingo Wireless are working together to bring free Wi-Fi for both New Yorkers and visitors alike. Starting June 25th, people could access the internet via free Wi-Fi hotspots set up in select subway stations across Manhattan.

Since its birth about a year ago, Google Offers has always been aggressive to provide the people of New York City and other 39 cities across the US with an easy way to find places to eat, play and shop. In a bid to make it even easier for the locals to find what they’re looking for online, it has partnered, for the first time, with Boingo Wireless to setup Wi-Fi hotspots in the following subway stations;

  • A, C, E station at Eighth Avenue and West 14th Street
  • L station at Eighth Avenue and West 14th Street
  • C, E station at Eighth Avenue and West 23rd Street
  • 1, 2, 3 station at Seventh Avenue and West 14th Street
  • F, M station at Sixth Avenue and West 14th Street
  • L station at Sixth Avenue and West 14th Street

This is going to be a summer-long free offering for straphangers so everyone could enjoy surfing the web without worrying much about overage charges until September 7, 2012. According to the director of marketing for Google Offers, Cliff Hopkins, this is just one way of bringing great deals to New Yorkers. This relatively new department of search titan has been working with hundreds of local businesses in bringing better deals for the localized market and so far, people are thankful for making their lives easier day-by-day.

The vice president of consumer marketing for Boingo Wireless, Dawn Callahan, also believes in the same idea as with Hopkins. In an official press release, she said that the partnership of Google Offers and Boingo Wireless brings the fun part faster for the people. Considering the internet plays a great role in everyone’s lives nowadays, stable and reliable connection like the ones being offered by Boingo is what people need to communicate or enjoy with their family.

Moreover, Transit Wireless is also grateful that big companies like Google also sees the importance of making transit riders connected most of the time. Transit Wireless CEO, William A. Bayne Jr., sees this opportunity as a great help in its vision to making subway riders of New York City the most connected people in the world.
