BT is to install Internet ready payphones following a year-long trial of Touch Point multimedia kiosks.
The UK telecomms giant has ordered 1,000 of the kiosk payphones from King Products of Canada. The first phones will be installed in October with national roll-out over the next 12 months.
BT will pay between Can$8 milion and Can$10 million for the systems.
BT installed 200 Touch Point kiosks around London over the last year. These give information on local amentities and activities.
The new systems will be powered by Intel MMX processors and will use ISDN connections to the BT switched network. These will provide access to information on areas such as news, weather, sport and travel.
