Chicago is getting its own NYC-style Wi-Fi stations—but don’t try to use them for porn

As New York City began with just four stations, Chicago is also starting small, with five Waypoints in the downtown area, including Michigan Avenue, for the pilot program. The city also learned a lesson from New York, where unfettered internet access turned the built-in tablets into public porn-surfing stations. Screens on Chicago’s stations will be limited to providing official city info, but Wi-Fi access will be uncensored. 

The network will be provided by AT&T, which plans to do the same in Atlanta; Dallas; Miami-Dade County; Chapel Hill, North Carolina; Montgomery County, Maryland; and Portland, Oregon.SC
