Link Kiosks Up and Running in Philadelphia
Philadelphia has debuted new interactive Link kiosks called LinkPHL, reports Chris Teale. "The kiosks from smart cities technology and media company Intersection will provide free Wi-Fi, mobile device charging and phone calls, as well as access to city services, information and advertising."
The kiosks have been a fixture in cities since 2016, including in New York and Newark, New Jersey. Intersection reports that 5 million users have tapped into the wireless service to access online information and services. The company wants to continue to roll out the kiosks in other cities across the country.
"If all goes well, and the company's information on transit, weather, local services and news mixes well with more off-beat and whimsical content, it could continue to move outward, especially as cities look to use technology like this to close the digital divide," says Teale.
