New telephone/communications units, known as a Pulse Smart Hubs, which have inset digital advertising screens could be coming to Chiswick High Road. They also have built in defibrillators and free wifi, air quality monitoring and free interactive maps and local information.
Urban Innovation Company, a telecommunications code operator have designed and developed the Pulse Smart Hub which they say has "revolutionised the humble telephone kiosk," and the company has applied for planning permission to install two units on the pavement at 610 and 548 Chiswick High Road.
They say the hubs, which have recently been installed in Belfast city, will help save lives, connect people and support crime prevention. They will provide:
Free local phone calls *
"Many of the existing telephone kiosks are outdated and do not provide the range of services that people who live in, work in and visit the city now require.
"Developing modern, state-of-the-art, well designed
smart hubs, incorporating telecommunication and digital services that
are free of charge is a public benefit and
Each Pulse Smart Hub will include a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) in the kiosk. The defibrillators will incorporate smart technology to allow administration without training to maximise the opportunity to save lives.
