AT&T to double solar mobile charging stations in New York

Tuesday 20 May 2014 | 21:50 CET | News
AT&T has announced plans to nearly double the number of solar mobile charging stations available in outdoor locations throughout New York's five boroughs during the summer in an effort to keep more New Yorkers connected. Beginning the week of 20 May, consumers with a mobile phone or tablet can charge their device free of charge at one of the AT&T Street Charge units in parks, beaches and outdoor gathering spots. Following kick off at the World's Fair Anniversary event on 18 May, units will be deployed to more locations citywide throughout the summer.
