NYC Payphones Are Being Replaced By Free WiFi Kiosks

Since payphones are no longer viable, New York City is placing free WiFi kiosks where they are now.

A part of the LinkNYC project, which is run by the city and CityBridge, a tech consortium that includes Qualcomm, CIVIQ Smartscapes and Intersection, a Google/Alphabet subsidiary, are facilitating the move.

The stations will offer super fast WiFi  at a range of up to 400 feet, built-in tablet computers, a 911 button, free phone calls within the U.S., and USB charging stations for tablets and smartphones.
