Coming soon: a Square Mile of Wi-Fi

21 Feb 2006

Wi-Fi network operator The Cloud is installing a dense and comprehensive Wi-Fi internet network throughout London’s so-called Square Mile – part of the City of London and the capital’s main financial district. The GBP1 million (USD1.74 million) network is due to go live within the next few months, with virtually all the City covered by August 2006. The network will be made up of around 140 hotspots installed in existing street furniture, including lamp posts and street signs, enabling users with Wi-Fi-enabled devices to access the internet on the move.
