Here’s some decent news for our customers in Southern California – and eventually, the rest of the country: today, RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE, we launched an app that will allow you to locate and log into any Time Warner Cable WiFi hotspot. You can go off and download it here:
We’ll have an iOS version out in a few weeks.
Let’s be honest here: this is a great, convenient little app, but it’s also table-stakes in an increasingly wireless, authenticated world. Here’s what you can expect:
For the time being, this app will only work in Android. But iOS will be along very shortly. We’re also going to expand it to our customers in other parts of the country. Given that Southern California has both the largest and densest concentration of our WiFi hotspots, it just makes sense for us to start there for now. And remember, TWC WiFi is a free service to all our home Internet customers, but anyone can log in using an Access Pass.
All of us – service providers, customers, armchair tech pundits – want the same thing: to be able to go more and more places and transition from network to network, WiFi zone to WiFi zone with as little friction as possible. This app is a first, important step to getting us there.
