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 Labs.
How will they do this you ask – through turning 10,000 of the big apple’s old phone booths into ad-supported ‘Wi-Fi pylons’.
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 directions.
According to Bloomberg News, these ‘pylons’ will be rolled out across New York this autumn.
