New York's Subways to Get Wi-Fi

Good news for visitors to New York: Boingo Wireless has announced that the company will bring Wi-Fi services to the New York City subway system per an agreement with Transit Wireless.

Wi-Fi access will gradually roll-out over the next five years throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens, and will eventually allow the New York Transit Authority's more than 1.6 billion annual subway riders to connect to the Internet via their portable wireless devices while waiting for their train.

One-click Wi-Fi access will be available to Boingo subscribers, as well as Boingo’s Wi-Fi roaming partners, including Skype, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.
