If the past week's weather is any indication, summer has hit New York in full force, and Boingo is teaming up with Google Offers to make its Wi-Fi hotspots across the city and a handful of subway stations available free of charge to mark the change of seasons. The promotion is running from today to September 7th, and it looks like you'll be exposed to a couple of highlighted local Google Offers deals in return for the free access. Unfortunately, subway internet access is still limited to the same six stations that first gained data connectivity last fall (full list below), but those stations will no longer be limited to just AT&T and T-Mobile connectivity — Wi-Fi will be available for all devices. Boingo promises it will have 36 stations wired up by the end of the year (including the Times Square, Columbus Circle, and Rockefeller Center stops), and the Wi-Fi service is still on track to make its way to all 277 stations over the next five years. For now you'll just need to make do with the handful of stations and wide selection of hotspots offered by the summer promotion, which would usually cost you $9.95 per month to access.
