BT’s new Street Hub kiosks want to improve 5G in major UK cities
June 5, 2021
BT is to roll out a new version of its ‘Street Hub’ units in major cities across the UK, claiming the digital kiosks will help improve 4G and 5G networks in urban areas and help local authorities meet environmental targets.
The first-generation Smart Hubs were introduced back in 2017, offering free 1Gbps Wi-Fi supported by digital advertising space. They replaced hundreds of phone boxes that had become unused or vandalised and were becoming a maintenance burden.
