It's about time! Last year Manhattan got free public Wi-Fi kiosks (and the subways got Wi-Fi too), and finally, Queens is adding even more free public Wi-Fi in the borough. It started with booths in Forest Hills and Kew Gardens in 2016, and now, more free Wi-Fi is arriving via LinkNYC kiosks that are being installed in Long Island City and Astoria.
There are already 11 kiosks on Jackson Avenue, and it's being reported that more will be installed on Broadway between 21st and 49th Streets. The internet will be beamed down from the heavens starting this month, and at the booths, you can also charge your phone and make phone calls for free.
