The units, called InLinks, will replace some of BT’s existing payphones in the capital, thanks to a new partnership between BT and Intersection, a leading UK outdoor advertising company.

Other services available from the InLinks will include mobile device charging, access to maps, directions and local services, and a new BT Phone Book app enabling users to search for businesses and people. InLinks’ digital displays will feature real-time information, such as tube service updates, weather forecasts and community messaging.
