It has been two years in the making, but the Big Apple is finally ready to put its free public Wi-Fi plan to action. In this plan, the city will transform old pay phones into Internet and information kiosks, providing Wi-fi hotspots for New Yorkers (and visitors).
New York City is acquiring the services of CityBridge, a consortium of several companies that include Qualcomm and Transit Wireless. This consortium is tasked with upgrading the more or less 10,000 outdoor pay phones located in NYC's five boroughs, and turning them into hip, new Internet stations called Links.
