Not everyone loves NYC's new Wi-Fi kiosks

NEW YORK (WABC) -- You may have seen those free Wi-Fi kiosks popping up across New York City.

They are meant to help people stay connected, but for some they have become more of a nuisance.

The city is starting to get complaints, and now local leaders are reacting.

Ruth Fasoldt, Community Affairs Manager for LinkNYC released a statement saying: "More than 400,000 New Yorkers have signed up to use LinkNYC, and our Wi-Fi network is already used more than a million times per week. We are still in the early phase of deployment, learning how New Yorkers and visitors are using the Links and how they would like to see them improved. We have heard the community's feedback and are actively working with those communities and the city to test potential adjustments to LinkNYC in response to their concerns to prevent any of the Links from being monopolized by any individual or groups of users."
