Wifi kiosks attract homeless
From CBS 2:
Superfast, free wi-fi is rolling out across New York City.
Payphones are being replaced with high-tech kiosks that offer internet access and smartphone charging, but some fear they’re becoming hotspots for the homeless.
It’s part of an effort to help the one in four New Yorkers who don’t have high-speed internet access at home.
But people making themselves comfortable at the kiosks – many of them homeless – is already an issue for some New Yorkers who have taken to documenting the problem on social media.
