7 Mar 2003

Swedish equipment manufacturer Ericsson has signed a contract with Inspired Broadcast Networks (IBN) – a company set up in August 2002 to exploit opportunities in the market for pay-to-use entertainment and broadband services in public spaces – to deploy 5,000 public Wi-Fi Hot Spots in over 3,000 locations. Ericsson will equip IBN’s entertainment terminals with public Wi-Fi Hot Spot capability, using digital subscriber lines for backhaul traffic.
