New York is to get its first free WiFi enabled park this summer, New York reports. It’s part of a plan to introduce the system to many of the city’s parks over the next few years.

New York City officials set a July deadline yesterday for a city contractor to have a wireless network up and running in Central Park, in what would be a major expansion of free Internet access that the city plans to replicate across its vast ribbons of parkland during the next several years.

While New York’s effort is limited to its parks, it is expected to have a huge impact, given the number of parks across the five boroughs and the density of the neighborhoods surrounding them. In many instances, residents and businesses near city parks are likely to be able to tap into the services.

Looks like we need a pair of these and take our Wifi Phone too.
