WiFi hot spots to blanket NYC

Microwave Satellite Technologies' NuVision operation plans to blanket New York City with WiFi hotspots one building at a time. The company is well underway: It already covers the southern part of Central Park, Riverside Park from 60th to 79th St., Dag Hammarskjold Park, the U.N. Plaza and several Trump properties. The service isn't free: Subscribers to NuVisions' in-building broadband service pay $24.95 and can then use the hot zones located in the city. Matarazzo claims his service is more robust than WiMAX and adds that "rooftop to rooftop, high-power radios can operate across 360 degrees. Then we just drop into conventional Wi-Fi."
