TELECOMWORLDWIRE-15 June 2010-NYFI submits proposal to build and operate Wi-Fi network on NY commuter trains(C)1994-2010 M2 COMMUNICATIONS http://www.m2.com
Neutral host Wi-Fi provider NYFI has announced it has submitted a proposal to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York (MTA) to build and operate a new Wi-Fi network on Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road trains.
The company said its solution would not require users to subscribe to a service to access the system without paying.
Rather than using a pay-for-service model, the NYFI approach would first assist the MTA by paying for an operational revamp of the MTA's revenue generating activities, including advertising. The results are expected to more than cover costs associated with the free Wi-Fi system, yielding increased annual revenue to the MTA while reducing costs.
The NYFI free Wi-Fi solution would start as soon as the proposal is accepted by the MTA.
NYFI is sponsored by Mobilitie, a private telecoms infrastructure provider.
