PayPhones As WiFi Spots: How Smart
|NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 09: New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg speaks during a news conference, with the CEO of AT&T Randall Stephenson, to announce the installation of free Wi-Fi service this summer in 20 New York City parks on June 9, 2011 in New York City. AT&T, which will maintain the service for a five-year period, plans to complete all the locations by the Fall. The 26 wireless internet hot spots in 20 parks will cover all the five boroughs.

The hotspots are initially coming to ten payphones in three of the boroughs and will be open to the public to access for free.10 is not enough, all I got to say. Okay to run ads. Just get it out to every single payphone booth out there. This will encourage people to ditch their careers in some cases. They will simply walk over to the nearest payphone stall to make a call over wifi.
10 is only not enough, it is misleading. People might get the news and walk over to some payphone booth only to realize there is no wifi. How inappropriate!
