AT&T Adding More Wi-Fi Hot Spots in U.S.

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- AT&T will be expanding its Wi-Fi access for customers in key cities across the U.S.

The wireless service provider is expected to announce Tuesday that it will be adding more Wi-Fi hot spots near New York's Time Square, just in time for the city's upcoming New Year's Eve festivities.

AT&T's Alexa Coffman says the expansion in New York will "include St. Patrick's Cathedral and up toward Rockefeller Center."

Wi-Fi hot spots will also be introduced in San Francisco.  According to Coffman, AT&T hopes the expansion will help customers by taking demand off the company's cell network and allowing smart phone users to switch over to Wi-Fi.
