New York City’s free gigabit WiFi comes to Brooklyn

As before, the LinkNYC kiosks aren’t just about free internet access. You also have free domestic calls (including easy connections to 311 and 911) and USB ports to charge your mobile devices. While you can’t browse the web from them like you could early on, they’re potentially crucial to the homeless, travelers and others who don’t have guaranteed internet and phone service in the Big Apple. – Jon Fingas, Engadget
