Does Jacob Javits Convention Center have free WiFi?

Yes, the Jacob Javits Convention Center has “free” WiFi available for attendees and event staff throughout the facility.

WiFi connectivity is available throughout the center, but it’s unclear at what speeds, as different sources quote different speeds. Regardless, you can rest assured that it’s not blazing fast and may only be sufficient for simple web browsing and basic e-mail at best. Additional solutions for exhibitor Internet access at a variety of speeds are available for a price.

How much does WiFi Internet connection cost per day at the Jacob Javits Convention Center?

Exhibitor WiFi/Internet at the Jacob Javits Convention Center can prove to be expensive, with prices starting at $1,621 for a 1.5Mbps managed service, for a 2-day event.

If you want higher bandwidth on the managed service, the prices increase accordingly:

  • $1,891 for 3Mbps
  • $3,735 for 5Mbps
  • $7,475 for 10Mbps
  • $10,590 for 15Mbps
  • $13,290 for 20Mbps

You can also get a WiFi package for your booth at $1,119 for 3-5 devices, at a speed of 1.5Mbps per device. For each additional device added to the Internet package, you will be charged $148. Please note, however, that all of these prices are at the advanced rate, for orders placed at least 15 days prior to the event opening date. For orders placed within two weeks, the prices are even higher.

As an alternative to the expensive rates charged by the in-house provider, thousands of exhibitors have rented 4G Internet Kits from Trade Show Internet to save money while not compromising on service.

How do I get WiFi supplied at the Jacob Javits Convention Center?

Third-party Internet/WiFi providers can net you significant savings (and streamlined ordering) compared to the “preferred” in-house provider at Javits, which charges higher rates partly because it is forced to share a portion of its revenue with the venue. As a result, many people depend on Internet solutions providers like Trade Show Internet for access to reliable, fast Internet at far more competitive prices.

We offer Jacob Javits Convention Center exhibitors a wide range of event Internet rental solutions to fit your specific needs.

Our 4G Internet Kit for exhibitors lets you connect up to 15 devices within a 60' x 60' coverage area. These start at $659 and offer reliable Internet speeds of up to 15 Mbps on download and 5 Mbps on upload.

Our 4G Mega Internet Kits, which can service up to 300 devices, operate at blazing fast speeds and offer reliable WiFi service to serve a large crowd. At a starting price of $2,450 and offering speeds of 80 Mbps on downloads and 25 Mbps on upload, they cost significantly less than the Internet solution offered directly from the venue.
