Free Wi-Fi Access Coming to Midtown Manhattan

As the free WiFi issue hits voter ballots in San Francisco, other cities are already jumping on board. According to The Boy Genius Report, CBS has just announced its plans to offer free WiFi access in midtown Manhattan. The "CBS Mobile Zone" will cover a rectangular space from Times Square to Central Park and between 6th and 8th Avenues.

CBS will be installing its own routers to blanket Manhattan with internet coverage—something both residents and visitors will greatly benefit from. Sound too good to be true? CBS will be showing ads to go along with the free WiFi. In my opinion, a small price to pay for free net access in the busiest part of NYC.

Damn, I wish we had that here in the Philippines. D: Ah well, the richer campuses and practically all the coffee shops offer free WiFi anyway.

That is sweet! Hopefully it'll extend into the rest of the city quickly, since I'm not in midtown all that much anymore...
