In Australia, Telstra has announced that some payphones will be re-purposed as Wi-Fi Hotspots as part of a plan to blanket public spaces with internet. More than 100 hot spots should be operational by Christmas 2014, including busy spots such as Bondi, Syndey city, Brisbane, Melbourne.
Access will only be free for some trial sites and later for Telstra customers only.
It’s a great start by Telstra… hopefully they follow London’s lead and add free device charging stations too.
