Default Google high speed hotspots will soon hit NYC

NYC streets will soon have high-speed wifi hotspot from Google powered Sidewalk Labs.
As per the latest reports Google is planning to implement this by investing in the project which turns old payphones into Wi-Fi hotspots.
As per the article from Acanac, these hotspots will provide high-speed internet which is 20 times faster than the normal household internet. "following a network test using Ookla’s Speedtest app, the Wi-Fi hubs reached a speed of 436.36Mbps down and 360.55Mbps up. A speed test was also conducted at a nearby Starbucks and reached a speed of only 7.59Mbps down and 1.60Mbps up." https://www.acanac.com/blog/general-...-is-new-again/
This project is estimated to generate at least $500 million in gross revenue over the 12-year period.

It seems that google already started this project worldwide and now
Google wants to bring free Wi-Fi to cities – and it's starting now with Sidewalk Labs in New York | Metro News
Google Station plans to make public WiFi in India a lot better | The Indian Express
This is about Google station hotspots.

I saw a porno that involved spam. Was pretty gross but I couldn't turn away.
