AT&T WiFi in Times Square For New Year's Eve

AT&T Helps Ready Times Square For New Year's Eve

As New York City crews are busy clearing feet of snow from Times Square in anticipation of Friday night's New Year's Eve celebration, AT&T is doing its part to help ready the "center of the universe" by expanding its WiFi coverage to better accommodate an expected 1 million guests.

AT&T debuted its Times Square WiFi coverage in May, but it was limited to specific and small areas of the square. Now, the coverage will be expanded to supplement AT&T's 3G signals to help users in the most crowded area of the city quickly post photos and messages and communicate with friends. And, since using a WiFi connection requires less battery power than a 3G connection, people will be able to stay connected longer without fear of a dead battery.

Smartphone users heading to the biggest party in the country, remember: a 3G signal is still required to make phone calls or receive text messages (unless you're using Google Voice), so plan accordingly!
