The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey reached an agreement with Boingo Wireless to install and operate neutral host cellular Distributed Antenna System (DAS) and high density Wi-Fi networks in select areas of the new World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan.

"The World Trade Center site is a modern, world-class development featuring state-of-the-art technology," said Port Authority Executive Director Pat Foye. "The new cellular and Wi-Fi networks at the Transportation Hub, retail and other locations will enhance the visitor experience, and ensure that our commuters and patrons can enjoy free, world-class connectivity on-the-go."

In May, the board authorized the installation of Wi-Fi at various locations at the World Trade Center. The multi-year agreement will include complimentary Wi-Fi in the retail areas of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, as well as the PATH Station.

When completed, the World Trade Center Transportation Hub will be the third largest transportation center in New York City, with more than 200,000 daily commuters and millions of annual visitors from around the world.

The WTC Transportation Hub's concourse will conveniently connect visitors to 11 different subway lines; the Port Authority Trans-Hudson rail system; Battery Park City Ferry Terminal; the World Trade Center Memorial Site; WTC Towers 1, 2, 3 and 4; the World Financial Center and the Winter Garden. It will represent the most integrated network of underground pedestrian connections in New York City.
