Setting the new global standard for connected cities
Control Group is part of the CityBridge team that’s developing LinkNYC, a public–private program bringing free gigabit Wi-Fi, civic services and a platform for innovation to New York City at no cost to taxpayers. In our role, we’re leading the technical strategy, software development and user experience design to ensure LinkNYC evolves with both technology advancements and New Yorkers’ needs over time.
Up to 10,000 Link structures will provide free public gigabit Wi-Fi (over 100x faster than your average public
Wi-Fi!), access to 911 and 311, free calls to anywhere in the U.S., USB charging, a tablet interface that supports third-party apps and a first of its kind data-driven digital out-of-home advertising network. The first Links are expected to roll out in 2015.
