Rucker Park Addition Marks 1st Anniversary AT&T NY Wi-Fi Initiative

To mark the first anniversary of NY’s “Wi-Fi in the Parks” initiative, AT&T has now made free Wi-Fi service available in Harlem’s Rucker Park, which is the 22nd out of the planned 26 parks offering free AT&T Wi-Fi service.

The service spans the five boroughs and is part of a five-year digital initiative with Mayor Bloomberg and the City of NY to provide free Wi-Fi at city parks. It allows any Wi-Fi enabled smartphone or tablet user, regardless of their mobile carrier, to connect to free AT&T Wi-Fi, which has since seen more than 2.7 million total connections to date with users averaging 10,000 connections made every day.

“This popular initiative is one more reason New York City is well on its way to becoming the nation’s leading digital city,” said Mayor Bloomberg in a statement. “I want to thank AT&T for their generous donation and their commitment over the past year to further improving the experience of visitors to parks across the five boroughs.”
