Have you been following the debate on net neutrality? Providers like Verizon the Internet to be a two-lane highway with a fast lane for those who can pay and a slow lane for the rest of us.
Read more about this week’s important ruling from the Federal Communications Commission in the New York Times. There’s also a video you can watch as well. This ruling keeps the Internet as is, a “core of free expression and democratic principles.”
The New York Times online edition is available to all CUNY students, faculty and staff! CUNY’s subscription entitles all people with a cuny.edu email domain to acquire a subscription to the digital NYTimes so you must register using your City Tech email.
Once you have created an account, access from anywhere will simply require your NYTimes login. Your subscription via CUNY will be active for a year from the date you create it.
An NYTimes Academic Pass provides you with full access to NYTimes.com and the NYTimes.com smartphone apps* for the period of time designated by your institution. Your school has set your pass to be good for 52 weeks from the date you activate it.
*Does not include e-reader editions, Premium Crosswords or The New York Times Crosswords apps. NYTimes apps are not supported on all devices. Access to archived articles within the date range 1923-1980 is limited. You must have a valid email address from a participating school. Other restrictions may apply.
Get Started: Go to nytimes.com/passes.
1. Click on “Register” to create a NYTimes.com account using your school email address.
2. At the bottom of the Welcome page, click “Continue.”
3. If your email address is from an eligible school, you will then see “Check your email.” Look for our message, Confirm Your Email Address, which should arrive within 15 minutes.
4. Click on the link in our confirmation email. This will simultaneously verify your eligibility and grant your Academic Pass, which will provide access to NYTimes.com for your campus designated period.
5. If you don’t get our confirmation email, check your spam filter. If you still do not receive it, send an email from your school email account to firstname.lastname@example.org
IMPORTANT: If you wish to subscribe to a CUNY academic pass and you already have a subscription (or have registered) with NYTimes Digital and you used your CUNY email on that subscription, you should change the email address on that subscription (to any email address that does not have a CUNY domain) and then use your CUNY email to get the academic pass.
Once you have followed the steps for first-time users and activated an Academic Pass provided by your school, it should allow you full access for 52 weeks (364 days) with no further action on your part.
However, if for any reason while on NYTimes.com you are served the message that you are reaching the limit of free articles on the site, do the following: Make sure you are logged in to NYTimes.com with your school email address. Go to nytimes.com/passes. Your pass should again be active.
Your Academic Pass includes access to The New York Times via the NYTimes smartphone apps. To download your smartphone app, visit: nytimes.com/mobile. Once you have registered and selected your Academic Pass, you can then access nytimes.com from anywhere at any time during the life of that pass from most web capable devices.
Learn to access the New York Times using your City Tech email!
