LinkNYC: the coronation of a Smart City as leader in public service tech!

This pioneering communications network replaced over 7500 public pay phones across NYC’s five boroughs with structures known as Links. LinkNYC provides New Yorkers and visitors with super fast, free Wi-Fi hotspots + free phone calls within the USA. Also: device charging and a tablet for internet browsing, access to city services, maps and directions. For the first time in the world, one experiences a Smart City as both traveler and local public service provider. With the deployment of LinkNYC, the Big Apple continues to live up to its much deserved reputation as the world’s premier international city. Funded by advertising. Free for everyone. #NeedEconomy
