CBS might get it right

I just read in the news that CBS is sponsoring a pilot program, CBS Mobile Zone, to provide free wifi to Midtown Manhattan. Wireless transmitters have been installed throughout the area at subway station entrances and routers have been distributed to some local businesses. There have been moves in other cities to do the same thing, and I am thrilled that New York City is the next in line to usher in the digital age for all residents.

This pilot program for midtown Manhattan joins a program already in effect which is wiring New York City Parks and Libraries with free internet access.

  1. what I'm curious about this (and other pilot programs I've read about) is what is the business model?

  2. I am guessing that they make revenues from the advertising that people have to sit through when they log on.
