The Rocks, phone booth

This phone booth is located outside a former warehouse, along Playfair Street at The Rocks. With the proliferation of mobile phones, many pay phones have been removed from the city and suburbs. Recently, some of the remaining phone booths have been repurposed to feature Wi-Fi hotspots, for access to the internet using smartphones and tablets. These phone booths have a pink cube on top with a white Wi-Fi symbol and promotional signs on the glass.

  1. What a good idea to re-purpose these old phone booths as WiFi Hotspots!

  3. Bonsoir,

    Chez nous aussi en France les cabines téléphoniques ont pratiquement toutes disparues...
    Très bonne idée que de leur trouver une seconde vie.

    ❀ Gros bisous ❀

  9. Phone booths are definitely a thing of the past. Not sure that I'd want to stand here for the wifi either...

    1. Halcyon, there are plenty of benches nearby where you can sit and surf the internet. The ones near parks seem to be quite popular.
