Hanging up on payphones

Monday, April 08, 2013

Boulder, Colorado, is hanging up on its downtown payphones.

City leaders say with most people using cellphones these days, it makes sense to pull the plug.

Officials tell The Daily Camera newspaper the city will terminate a contract that provided four phones on the Pearl Street Mall.

Revenue from the phones amounted to little more than pocket change.

Boulder officials hope to have the phones out by next month.
