Ad-Supported Wi-Fi Coming to NYC Parks?
AnchorFree is in talks to have its advertising service help support free Wi-Fi in some New York City parks. Mark Smith, AnchorFree chief operating officer, says the company is testing its ad-supported service and network for WiFi Salon . Marshall Brown, chief executive of WiFi Salon, says it's premature to discuss plans because a deal hasn't been signed. WiFi Salon, which has a concession from the the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, runs 17 hot spots in city parks, including Union Square, Washington Square, and Central parks
