Say goodbye to public payphones and hello to “state-of-the-art public connection points” that would offer phone service while also creating one of the largest free Wi-Fi networks in the country.

The city Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT) issued a call for Request for Proposals (RFP) on Thursday, May 1, seeking plans from urban designers for the construction and maintenance of the new network. Ideas for the “connection points” could include cell phone charging stations, touch screens and solar power cells.

RFPs are due by Monday, June 30 at 5 p.m.. More details can be found at
