What's This?

NYC WiFi Hubs are the best thing that has happened to New Yorkers. A busy city needs to be tech-friendly and understand the impact it has on daily life. Due to unavailability of Wi-Fi, entrepreneurs and other busy individuals have no other option than to roam around with smartphones, tablets or laptops along with the internet. What if their battery drains suddenly or your forget your gadget at home?


NYC WiFi Hubs offer free, fast internet connection to New Yorkers. These hubs have now added Android tablets so that citizens can check emails, call their loved ones or look for directions on Google Maps. Just imagine what if you forgot your phone at home or at work and need to get in touch with your boss or partner on an urgent basis? Or what if you are new to the city and are in need of directions? That is when these NYC WiFi Hubs will make sense and you will thank the city for offering fast internet absolutely free of cost.

Along with the Android tablets, the NYC WiFi hubs also have USB chargers and headphone ports, which mean your phone calls will be private and while you check your email or speak to a loved one, you can charge your phone too. Are you concerned about security? “Since security is an obvious concern, the tablets eventually time-out and the cookies are deleted after a minute of no activity,” reported The Verge.
