Queens residents will have access to free Wi-Fi during the Major League Baseball All-Star Week July 12-16.

Time Warner Cable is the official Wi-Fi provider of All-Star Week and will offer free access to its Wi-Fi hotspots to the entire city during the event dates. More than 1,700 of the public hotspots are located in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island and the company plans to add up to 10,000 more spots across New York City by the end of the year.

The TWC Wi-Fi hotspots in Queens are at Fresh Pond, Middle Village-Metropolitan Avenue, Jamaica Station, Hollis Veterans Square, Red Shed Garden, World War Memorial, Libra Triangle, Middleburgh Triangle, Veterans Grove, areas of Corona, areas of East Elmhurst, areas of Flushing, areas of Murray Hill and the Noguchi Museum.

“We’re thrilled to officially launch TWC Wi-Fi in New York City, just in time for MLB All-Star Week, when millions of fans will be here to support their teams. By offering free access during the event, they can sample the service to conveniently check scores and stats using TWC Wi-Fi hotspots around the city,” said Mike Roudi, senior vice president of corporate development.

Time Warner Cable connects more than 15 million customers to video, high-speed data and voice services. TWC Internet customers have access to the nation’s largest free Wi-Fi hotspot network.

The Wi-Fi spots can be found using the free TWC Wi-Fi Finder app available in Google Play and the Apple App store. Access to all available hotspot locations can also be found at twc.com/wificoverage.
