Public facilities should be used for good things by the community, but there are those who abuse it. This happens on the free Internet service provided to New Yorkers through WiFi Kiosks.

WiFi Kiosks is a program of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, which in February 2016 established its first hotspot point. This program is designed to provide free Internet facilities for visitors and residents of New York City.

Free WiFi, Abused to Open Porn Sites

WiFi Kiosks also provides a place to charge mobile phone batteries, weather reports, and maps, to make it easier for people while browsing this metropolis. Quickly, citizens of New York City also take advantage of free high-speed Internet via an encrypted WiFi channel.

After eight months of hotspots or kiosks named Links are present in the community, the LinkNYC team has surprisingly announced that they are discontinuing free web browsing services on tablet devices. Why? The service is terminated because it is used to access porn sites.

Internet Kiosks is actually designed to replace public phones. Where each hotspot point is able to reach up to a radius of 150 feet that offers free phone service, two USB ports charge, 911 emergency button, and provides a tablet to access the Internet.

Unfortunately, the LinkNYC team found that the tablet was used to access pornographic content, not for good activity. No exception with children who participate using tablets to access these negative things. As a follow up to this, the LinkNYC team has finally disabled the web browsing feature on Kiosks tablets.

In addition to the web browsing feature, all Kiosks services are still valid including free hotspot facility. Although web browsing on Kiosks tablets is turned off, kids can still access porn sites via smartphones or laptops using free WiFi. How do you feel about this service?
