82307295_bf343a7241AT&T is making efforts in using solar powered charging stations in the New York City area .

Starting Tuesday, 25 solar-powered charging stations will sprout in parks, beaches and other outdoor spaces in the five boroughs, part of a pilot project from the wireless provider in partnership with the city.  The stations will have 12.5-foot steel poles with three petal-shaped solar panels fanning out on top .  These stations can accommodate up to 6 devices  at a time regardless of the wireless carrier.

Eddie Hold, vice president of the Connected Intelligence unit at NPD Group, says “To make money out of data services the telecom companies need to convince you to connect as many devices as possible. The more you connect, the more data you use, the more money they make.”  People are able to use more and more data without any problems.
