Back in November 2014, New York City announced plans to replace pay phones with gigabit WiFi hotspots in 2015. Well, the year's almost up, and today the installation began. The Verge caught a look at the process as the so-called LinkNYC access points began going up. Once the kiosks are up and running, you can expect to connect to WiFi within about 150 feet. However, you may have to wait a bit to give it a go, as a test phase is expected to follow once the equipment is in place.
