A new contract between Brookhaven Town and Cablevision will provide WiFi hot spot access at nine town locations, including the Henrietta Acampora Recreation Center in Blue Point.
According to a town press release there will be no cost to the town for the design, installation and deployment of the service. It's a free service for Cablevision customers but those who aren't will have two payment options: free access one time per day for 10 minutes for a total of three uses in a 30-day timeframe or a daily rate of $4.99.
Other “hot spots” include town hall, the Parks Administration Building in Centereach, Brookhaven Calabro Airport, Heritage Park in Mount Sinai, Mastic Pool and Skate Park, Medford Athletic Complex, Rose Caracappa Recreation Center in Mount Sinai and West Meadow Beach in Stony Brook.
Cablevision was the sole respondent to a town request for Proposals for WiFi which was issued in August of 2011.
