City Begins Wi-Fi Pilot Program in 10 Phone Booths

This sounds like a brilliant way to repurpose antiquated technology and improve pedestrian life.

The city has converted 10 public pay phones in three boroughs – Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens – into free Wi-Fi hot spots, infusing a blast of modern technology into some of the city’s most notably outdated infrastructure. The project is considered a way to explore the feasibility of a citywide Wi-Fi network, and a chance for the city to consider what it can do with the thousands of pay phones that remain active.
