knowing that nothing is free…
no mention of the cost to the city in the Boston Globe: story….
I am certain that RCN Business Services, LCC International Inc., Pacific Telemanagement Services and DAS Communications are NOT doing this out of the goodness of their heart or to payback the city for the outstanding services that Boston has provided these companies….
Some pay phones in Boston to offer free Wi-Fi Internet hotspots this summer
Free Wi-Fi Internet access will soon be broadcast from 16 existing pay phones in Boston.
And officials from companies leading the effort hope to, pending city approval, rapidly expand the service so that a total of about 100 existing pay phones across Boston will offer free wireless Internet hotspots by the end of this summer. By the end of next summer, they hope they will have reached a total of about 400 payphones citywide.
