A walk down a few popular neighborhoods in NYC will undoubtedly bring you face to face with LinkNYC's Wi-Fi kiosks. The city has made a major push to install these as quickly as possible and cover the city with free ad-free Wi-Fi access for every citizen. It's working. And it's working well, with speeds easily reaching college-level speeds. No longer do you have to go to the Apple store for free fast internet. Just sit at your local park, or camp out for a few minutes in front of a kiosk and enjoy these incredible speeds.
PS: NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo announced an initiative this morning for broadband access for all. LinkNYC seems to fall nicely into that idea.
