LinkNYC is a new communications network that is replacing New York City pay phones with state-of-the-art kiosks called Links. Each Link is equipped with free services like high-speed Wi-Fi, phone calls, a tablet for web browsing, and device charging for anyone living in or visiting New York City to enjoy. In addition to Link’s features being free to the public, they also come at no cost to taxpayers. Over the next several years, over 7,500 Links will be installed across the five boroughs.
The launch of LinkNYC will soon begin with a beta phase, giving New Yorkers an early opportunity to try out Link's features and provide feedback. Additional apps and services will be rolled out over the next few months and on an ongoing basis over the next several years.
