N.Y.C. pay-phone kiosks to be WiFi hot spots

NEW YORK -- Pay-phone kiosks -- the remnants of days gone by -- are to get a new lease on life in New York City: They'll host wireless Internet hot spots.

The city is introducing a pilot program in about 10 locations. It hopes to expand it to nearly 12,000 kiosks throughout the five boroughs. The signal would extend out a couple of hundred feet.

The initiative announced Wednesday is part of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's NYC Digital initiative. The city's Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications is working with several pay-phone companies.
