The Wall Street Journal has blanketed areas of New York City and San Francisco with free Wi-Fi for registered users. The network — appropriately labeled "The Wall Street Journal WiFi" — will be available through September at more than 1,300 hotspots in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and 70 percent of Manhattan, as well as Washington Square, Nob Hill, and Fisherman's Warf in San Francisco. Digital subscribers and registered users can access the connection with their current log-in information; print subscribers and new users will be prompted to sign up for a free account. WSJ has not specified who is supplying the network, although SpeedTest revealed that Towerstream is providing the infrastructure in New York City, just as it did with Skype previously.
