Time Warner Cable is up to more than 90 hotspots in the Charlotte metro area with its new TWC WiFi™ service. TWC WiFi will provide fast, reliable Internet access to any WiFi-enabled laptop, phone or tablet in Charlotte’s City Center and South End, Myers Park, Dilworth and Midtown neighborhoods.
As a bonus, our WiFi network will be free to all visitors during the Democratic National Convention. We are joining other area businesses to help showcase Charlotte to the expected 35,000 DNC visitors. Now that’s southern hospitality!
This is really great news for TWC Internet customers. Customers who pay for Standard or higher service will be able to access the WiFi network for free. The same goes for Business Class Internet customers. Everyone else living in or visiting the metro area of the Queen City can stay connected by purchasing an Access Pass for whatever time period they need—an hour, day, week or month.
Connecting to TWC WiFi is pretty simple. All you need is your TWC Internet e-mail address and password. Follow these instructions to connect.
1. Turn your WiFi feature ON.
2. Select TWCWiFi network from your connection options.
3. Open an Internet browser.
4. Enter your TWC Internet e-mail address and your password on the WiFi Sign-in screen.
5. You’re connected to TWC WiFi.
If you don’t know your email address and/or password, you can retrieve them by following these simple steps:
Go to https://help.rr.com/HMSpwd/ptMainNav.aspx, select your City and State, and from there retrieve both. Or call 1-877-566-4892 for help.
Locating TWC WiFi™ Hotspots is also easy thanks to the mobile WiFi Finder app. You can download it from Google Play or the iTunes App Store.
Of course, TWC WiFi will be around long after the convention ends. Charlotte is the latest city where TWC Internet customers can access its WiFi service. Customers can also connect in New York City, Southern Connecticut, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. Even better, Time Warner Cable is partnering with other cable companies to offer access to more than 100,000 hotspots across the country by the end of 2012.
