Yesterday, New York City announced the additional of even more free Wi-Fi hotspots in all five boroughs, though most of them will be in Brooklyn and Manhattan. In a statement, Mayor Michael Bloomberg explained that the move was about staying competitive.
"If New York City is going remain competitive in the global economy, we must find ways to support the entrepreneurs who are driving technological advances and creating jobs," he said. "With these new initiatives, we are making targeted investments to improve our cityâ€™s wireless infrastructure and expand Internet access."
