Bryant Park Wireless Network
Please note: The Bryant Park WiFi network is currently on hiatus. We are upgrading our system, and will be bringing park visitors an upgraded free WiFi network by mid March, 2017.
Bryant Park is a WiFi "Hot Spot", bringing the internet free to users of laptops and handheld devices with 802.11n and 802.11g Ethernet cards.
In 2001, Bryant Park Corporation envisioned offering free internet access in the park, but wasn't sure how to build such a network. After rejecting several approaches requiring wired benches, standalone kiosks, or other stationary concepts, the idea of creating a wireless environment in the park was born.
In the summer of 2002, the Bryant Park Wireless Network launched with three access points covering the park and allowing users to surf the Net as long as their batteries allow.
Since that time, the network has undergone several upgrades. In 2011, Bryant Park Corporation teamed with Sky-Packets install a brand new, state of the art wireless network. The latest upgrade has made the system capable of accommodating thousands of users each day, and has enabled Bryant Park to be one of the busiest hotspots in the world.
Go wireless and turn Bryant Park into your new office. Your clients will be impressed with your front lobby.
