An online upgrade for the Fordham Road
Starting 2013 December, Fordham’s Business Improvement District (BID), will have a series of online access points or Internet hubs along its buzzing commercial stretch of East Fordham Road from Grand Concourse to Arthur Avenue. It will be sponsored by the Spanish company Gowex and will be installed along the shopping district in phases over the next three years.
What does this mean to the shoppers and the public?
The shoppers or students trickling down from nearby Fordham University or Monroe College will be able to get online both outside and in local businesses using the free WIFI. This means more people will be relying on local search engine results or apps to locate a product or service they are looking for.
