It has been recently announced that New York City will now be connected fully with internet no matter where you go. After Transit Wireless through there revolutionary CEO Alex Mashinsky pushed through the plans to get Wi-Fi in the New York subway network, are now planning on getting Wi-Fi into the one thousand odd livery cars which are operating in New York City. This plan is expected to be completed by the fall this year and there are more plans to expand the network of these vehicles as soon as possible. In a recent statement given to the press, Mashinsky commented on their plans to expand the network of vehicles where he said that they were looking at a major expansion in this regard. The verdict is still out however on the effectiveness of the Wi-Fi network in the subways. However, looking at the constructive way in which they have set up this plan, it seems quite encouraging.
When this network gets underway, you will be able to use your Wi-Fi capable machine to get to your email, social networking page and other applications in places where you could not do so earlier. Probably one of the biggest concerns about this network is the reliability of the signal when the car will be in transit on the roads and through areas where the signal quality is not really good. This plan has been welcomed by a huge section of the technological fraternity.
There are some issues with regards to connection where the phones automatically reconnect with the new towers when they change locations. However, what happens with the Wi-Fi is that the user will have to reconnect manually. However, Transit Wireless believes that this issue should be solved in the next generation of wireless internet devices which will make it much easier to get Wi-Fi on the streets.
