Canada's Yukon territory gets its first free Wi-Fi access kiosk
The first free Wi-Fi access kiosk in the Yukon in northern Canada has been installed at the corner of Main Street and Second Avenue in Whitehorse. The kiosk features a large touchscreen display and provides free Wi-Fi access and free USB charging stations for mobile phones, according to the CBC.
Tammy April, vice president of consumer markets at Northwestel, the local area phone and internet provider, said that the smart kiosk replaces a pay phone that had been in place for about 40 years.
The kiosk displays links to help visitors and residents locate downtown tourist attractions and restaurants. It also provides up-to-date information about and directions to local events, and even features a built-in photo booth that lets users take and email selfies.
