AT&T has announced the launch of an AT&T WiFi "hotzone" in New York City’s Times Square, providing coverage for many AT&T customers visiting and residing in New York who use WiFi enabled smartphones, laptops, netbooks and other devices. The new WiFi coverage zone is a pilot deployment to explore the use of WiFi to provide an additional mobile broadband option in areas with consistently high 3G traffic and mobile data use.

AT&T has installed WiFi service in the north central part of Times Square, near 7th Avenue between 45th and 47th Street, to provide a large outdoor hotspot zone that AT&T users can access using any WiFi enabled device. The WiFi hotzone at Times Square is available at no additional charge for AT&T customers with qualifying Internet plans.

Based on the results from the pilot location, AT&T may deploy additional hotzones in other areas across the country where more ubiquitous WiFi availability may be beneficial for customers.
