Chinese To Transform Phone Booths In To WiFi Hotspots

Posted by Greg | December 21, 2010  |  No Comment

It seems as though local telecommunication companies in China have been losing money on phone booths located in cities nationwide. They’ve come up with a pretty awesome solution that benefits everyone. Instead of just demolishing the phone booths, they will instead transform them in to WiFi hotspots for public use. These “WiFi Kiosks” will essentially turn major Chinese cities in to giant hotspots, and will help these companies compete with 3G service providers. No word on how much this may end up saving the average user, but there’s a good chance that the companies which run the WiFi Kiosks will try to undercut 3G providers prices. Cheaper internet is always a good thing, WOOT!
