National Show to offer free Wi-Fi access
Next month's National Show in Chicago is about cable, but wireless will also play a role.
The National Cable & Telecommunications Association said it will offer show-goers free wireless Internet access in the form of a "Wi-Fi Park" that will populate the show floor. The show is scheduled to run June 8–11.
The park will offer the service free of charge via broadband routers provided by Motorola Broadband. Comcast Corp., the area's local cable provider, will provide the high-speed connection to the Internet.
In addition to the Wi-Fi Park, this year's confab will also be home to a new 8,000 square-foot HD Pavilion.
