The plan NYC is running to enable its pay phone locations with Wi-Fi stipulates that providers can’t charge for it; they can instead charge for phone service, and incorporate advertisements. The request covers all of New York’s 7,300 pay phones, which would mean that the successful completion of a project would result in a city pretty much blanketed with free Wi-Fi. The RFP from the city also stipulates that users, once connected to one payphone hotspot, can connect to any other in the city without having to login anew.
