Say bye to New York's pay phones and hello to one of the largest public Wi-Fi experiments ever. LinkNYC will replace pay telephones with a console that provides free public Wi-Fi, up to gigabit speeds, 24/7. The physical pillar will also provide free domestic phone calls (including 911 and 311), a charging station for your devices, and a "touchscreen tablet interface to access City services, directions, and more.

LinkNYC will reportedly be funded entirely through advertising. The project is estimated to generate more than $500 million in revenue for NYC over the first 12 years.
