AT&T has announced plans to launch free Wi-Fi throughout the Time Square area of New York City to its smartphone customers. AT&T said the move is to help alleviate network congestion. "It's a very large data off-load in a venue where traditionally data would go over our old voice and data network," says Mike Maus, who manages AT&T's New York network. The hotspot is located near 7th Avenue between 45th and 47th Streets. According to AT&T, smartphones that have the Wi-Fi radio turned on will automatically switch to the Wi-Fi network for data sessions. There is no charge associated with using the Wi-Fi network.
