NEW YORK - Cablevision Systems said on Thursday it is planning to build a wireless broadband network to serve its subscribers in the New York area.

The company's Chief Operating Officer Tom Rutledge said the new network, which will have speeds up to 1.5 megabits per second, will be completed within the next two years.
