In LA - they have a LOT of Wifi - probably more coverage than most ever would use, and keeps many from requiring a cell plan on a tablet.
Really? Of all the times I've checked for wifi availability, I've only seen TWC wifi show up once. I stumble across AT&T much more frequently (usually due to a Starbucks).
I'm not sure what the point of investing in wifi is. TWC would be much wiser to spend their efforts on their cable system. Their LA HD lineup is still a total joke and they're still running Comcast's iGuide software from 2004. -- AT&T U-Hearse - RIP Unlimited Internet 1995-2011 Rethink Billable.
probably more likely to push a deal to many 'urban dwellers' (NYC) where they wouldn't want to pay the extra $20-$30/month for limited data over cellular.
Maybe their long term is to partner with a cellular provider (aren't they hitching up with VZW?). It'd give AT&T a run for their money, and reduce the cost of overages, and give them some clickstream cash.
