Lambeth LBC has opened its first i-plus kiosk as a way of maximising its residents access to information about services.
The kiosk allows anyone to send free e-mails, pay their TV licence or search for jobs across the country. Residents can access the latest travel information and news, as the kiosk is linked to the ITN website and Lambeth's own homepage.
The touch-screen kiosk, outside Brixton Underground, is part of a project developed with media technology company Cityspace and street furniture company Adshel. Following the results of this pilot, Lambeth will decide if more kiosks should be put up.
Councillor Tom Franklin (Lab), who helped open the kiosk, said: 'I know that in the few days that the i-plus kiosk has been up there has already been a tremendous amount of usage and that was before anyone knew anything about it.
The technology is enormously impressive. After a couple of minutes using it, the kiosk was able to get job details sent to my mobile phone.'
Brixton resident Cecile Nobrega has decided she will be using the new kiosk to stay in contact with her niece in Ontario, Canada. 'This will be a tremendous way of keeping in touch with my family. It's quite a thing, isn't it,' said the 81-year-old.
The i-plus kiosk is already established in Bromley, Islington, Kensington & Chelsea and Southwark LBCs and in Bristol City Council, Knowsley MBC and Reading BC.
