Time Warner Has Free WiFi HotSpots in Austin

Time Warner Cable today announced that the company has begun deployment of TWC WiFi™, a citywide WiFi Hotspot network for its customers in Austin, Texas. Access to the TWC WiFi™ network is free to Time Warner Cable customers with Standard Internet or above and to Time Warner Cable Business Class Internet customers. Additionally, free Trial and Prepaid Access options starting as low as $2.95/hour are available on TWC WiFi™ for those not qualifying for free access.

“Increasingly, our Austin customers want to take their high-speed Internet with them out of the home and on-the-go,” said Area Vice President Kathy Brabson. “The TWC WiFi™ network we’re building for Austin will allow our customers to greatly maximize their TWC Internet subscription – at no additional charge.”

In Austin, customers today can access a limited number of hotspots with hundreds more to become available in 2013 as Time Warner Cable builds out the network. TWC WiFi™ will be introduced at popular locations where residents eat, live and play like Zilker Park, Barton Springs, Lamar, Congress, 5th and 6th Streets. Users should look for the TWC WiFi™ network name and then follow prompts to connect. To easily locate and access TWC WiFi™ Hotspots, customers are encouraged to download the free TWC WiFi™ Finder app available in Google Play and the Apple App Store or visit www.twc.com/wificoverage to view the hotspot coverage map.

  1. Poor TWC, trying to seem progressive before Google Fiber comes a calling.
