Time Warner Cable Turns To MLB To Promote N.Y. WiFi Expansion
Former MLBer Bernie Williams will take part this morning in a Time Warner Cable press conference to promote the expansion of the company's WiFi network in N.Y. TWC recently activated 1,000 WiFi hotspots in Manhattan, part of a larger plan to have 10,000 across the five boroughs by the end of the year. TWC will also have several food trucks with several current and former MLB players travelling around the city during the next week's MLB All-Star Game festivities to further promote the WiFi rollout.
As part of the expansion, TWC will also make more than 2,700 of its outdoor WiFi hotspots free and open to the public during All-Star week. The effort, including Williams' appearance today, is being managed by CAA.
