Verizon to make pay phones into wireless network

The Washington Post reported Saturday that Verizon is poised to announce that they will make pay phones into wireless access points. This timing coincides with what our local Verizon sales folks have been saying about Express Net coming soon. Will these be one and the same? I'd hope not as the Post article says they will only put the wireless hot spots in high traffic areas.

The remaining question is when will resort areas figure out that people want wireless high-speed access. I'm tired of paying $9/hour at an internet cafe for access. I'd be far more likely to visit an area that has good wireless in it's motels than one that doesn't..
