Time Warner offers free Wi-Fi in NYC

Cable company's customers can now connect to free, unlimited Wi-Fi via "thousands" of hot spots throughout the city.

Time Warner Cable has launched free Wi-Fi for all 1 million of its New York City customers.

According to Time Warner, customers can connect to "thousands" of high-speed Wi-Fi hot spots around the city starting Thursday. Time Warner Cable subscribers will have unlimited access to the Wi-Fi services, which run on Cablevision's Optimum Wi-Fi network that launched in 2008.

It should be noted that only New York City-based subscribers will be able to access the hot spots. In order to access a hot spot, customers will need to log in using their Road Runner username and password.

Subscribers looking to find free hot spots can visit the company's Wi-Fi page to see whether any are nearby.
