  1. Comcast, Time Warner, and Cablevision have reportedly banded together to broaden the availability of Wi-Fi in metropolitan areas of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. The cable giants have opened their Wi-Fi signals to each others' customers, so subscribers of one company's broadband service can now access hotspots from all three providers.

  2. Cablevision customer here, awesome news!
     
  3. Well that looks to be a smart idea as Verizon FIOS in the Metropolitan area has had this out for over a year now. Can't say I would ever use any of those 3 companies for internet as I have a 35Mbps Upload/Download through Verizon for $35 a month in my house and those rip off companies could never even offer me 10Mbps for that price pretty bad marketing in my opinion. Good thing they are following the leaders of the broadband market to make them look better.
