WiFi Network in City of London

Filed under: Technology — janats @ 6:08 pm

The city of London has turned on an area wide WiFi network providing access to anyone within what is known as the Square Mile.  It consists of a network of 127 nodes that have been placed on lamp posts and which provide internet access.

The scheme is being monitored as a testbed for potential municipal WiFi.  Unlimited access costs though – £12 a month.

The network’s backers think one of the big attractions
will be the ability to use wi-fi enabled phones to make cheap calls
using Skype or other internet telephony services.

It is said to be the continent’s most advanced wireless network –  a claim made by the network’s creator, The Cloud / The City of London Corporation.
