NYC Rolling Out Public Gigabit Wi-Fi Hubs

Do you guys think it’s safe to leave my phone or laptop at one of these to charge?

The full network will install more than 7,500 public hubs throughout the city, each replacing a pre-existing phone booth. Once completed, the hubs will also include USB device charging ports, touchscreen web browsing, and two 55-inch advertising displays. The city estimates that ads served by the new hubs will generate more than $500 million in revenue over the next 12 years.
