City Installs First Free Wi-Fi Hotspot in East Village

(DNAINFO)  John Santoro | December 28, 2015 — The first high-speed public Wi-Fi hotspot kiosk was installed at the intersection of Third Avenue and 15th Street in the East Village Monday.

The hardware behind the LinkNYC network will replace the city’s former phone booths. Each kiosk installed by CityBridge LLC will provide Internet access in a 150-foot radius, as well as free domestic calls to the United States and a tablet computer for internet browsing, according to city spokeswoman Natalie Grybauskas.

The kiosk was not operational yet as technicians still need to test the equipment, but it should be online within two months, said Grybauskas.
