Kiosks could make public Net access common

Public-access Internet sites may soon become as common in airports and shopping malls as pay telephones and vending machines.

NCR recently introduced the interactive kiosk in Washington at the White House's Electronic Commerce Forum, which was attended by vendors, government officials, business executives and trade associations.

They plan to sell their Internet kiosks to telephone companies, which would charge users by the minute. Payment would be by credit card.

The kiosks could either give users unlimited access to the Internet or be confined to topics thought to be of interest to those likely to use the terminals,

For example, travelers at airports could use the kiosks to get travel and entertainment information or even purchase their tickets. A telephone store could have a terminal with online information about cellular phones and service. And when not in use, the computer screens are used to advertise other products. The possibilities seem endless but we're working on them.
