This Tuesday, October 16 marked the official launch of LinkNWK, a series of Link kiosks serving users with secure Wi-Fi and other features. In addition to Wi-Fi, Link kiosks offer mobile device charging; the ability to make phone calls within the U.S.; community content produced with local partners; and access to municipal services, maps and directions.
Newark joins New York City, London, and other cities in the U.K. in its use of Link. Newark is the first city to launch with the Link Wi-Fi App, which provides users with a secure, encrypted connection to the LinkNWK network.
“With its growing tech community, renowned academic institutions, and key investments in municipal fiber, Newark is a perfect partner for the Link program.” said Ari Buchalter, CEO of Intersection. “As we’ve seen in New York City and London, providing free high-speed Wi-Fi, digital services, and engaging content on city streets enriches the experience of the city for residents, workers, and visitors. We are thrilled to welcome Newark to the growing network of Link cities looking to modernize and improve the urban experience.”
