In some cities, public payphones will soon be turned into free Wi-Fi spots

The city of New York has decided that for it’s thousands of public payphones that have sat dormant for a long time the time has some to do something with them. The Department of Information and Technology is seeking a contract or partnership for someone to take over the whole operation. These wi-fi spots would also act as advertising spots, some video and some static. This program would allow many people who can not afford broadband service access to the internet. Many of these stations would increase in size and height. The Mayor Bill de Blasio says that this would be a huge benefit to both consumers and businesses.

The idea and plan seem like a great idea but it’s the legal hurdles that always slow down progress. If you are interested in finding out more click on the link below.
