Five-year rollout will bring hotspots to NYC subway

Boingo and Transit Wireless on Thursday announced a deal that will see New York City subway stations equipped with hotspots. The rollout will occur gradually over the next five years in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens stations. Users will need to have a Boingo account or access the hotspot network using their Skype, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon accounts.

The New York Subway sees about 1.6 billion annual patrons, making the potential reach of the Wi-Fi hotspot huge.

Boingo already operates similar Wi-Fi hotspots in shopping malls, stadiums, arenas, airports, and restaurants.
