Google is rolling out free wifi in New York as part of a
trial the company hopes will eventually span across
the whole of the world.
The internet giant has even gone as far as to set up a
company specifically dedicated to the task, called Sidewalk
How will they do this you ask – through turning 10,000 of
the big apple’s old phone booths into ad-supported ‘Wi-Fi
These converted booths are also intended to provide cell-
phone charging, free domestic phone calls and a touch
screen information hub about the city and transit
According to Bloomberg News, these ‘pylons’ will be rolled
out across New York this autumn.
