Intersection Company, which sells free Wi-Fi access points in New York and is known for its LinkNYC brand, is entering the London telecommunications market. In the UK capital, it intends to install points with Internet access speed of up to 1 gigabit and is going to develop business called InLinkUK.
The essence of the project is the installation of information kiosks, equipped with a touch-screen keyboard and a screen, where you can get access to the city maps, services` phones and other online resources. In such kiosks, you can also recharge your smartphone or tablet.
Screens of kiosks broadcast advertisements, and there is an opportunity to connect to high-speed Wi-Fi network near such point. Unlike American LinkNYC kiosks, their UK versions of InLinkUK will track and store in memory the sites that the user visits on his personal device when using the public one, using Wi-Fi. The requirement is set at the legislative level and is strictly followed by all Internet providers in the United Kingdom.
In London already there is network of free Wi-Fi points - The Cloud, which has more than 20 thousand points. But InLinkUK promises fewer restrictions on viewing pages on the network, as well as much faster access speed.
