I remember when this bench launched - people could plug their modems into the arms of the park bench and access the internet. I wonder what happened to it, and if we can feature it at the 1010 Festival

08.2001: It got vandalised, and then 2 teenagers discovered you could make free long-distance calls from it.

So was this the beginning of VoIP or were they just plugging in standard phones?
