City of London Goes WiFi With Wireless Across the Square Mile
Posted on 21-Feb-2006 08:25. | Tags Filed under: News.



The City of London Corporation has announced plans to install a dense Wi-Fi network throughout London's Square Mile. The City is entering a partnership with The Cloud, Europe's largest Wi-Fi network operator, to install and manage the network.

Expected to go live in the next few months with virtually all the City covered within six months, the Wi-Fi network will be installed in existing street furniture including lamp posts and street signs, allowing City workers and visitors with Wireless-enabled devices to access the internet on streets and in open spaces.

The Cloud's open network concept means any service provider can use this new Wi-Fi network to provide services to its customers. Supported applications include high speed internet access, rich email access, music, video and other entertainment services, and voice over WiFi services

Michael Snyder, Chairman of the City of London's Policy Committee, said: "We feel it is important to provide this technology to maintain our position as the world's leading international financial centre. City workers and visitors will be able to use wireless broadband to work more efficiently; staying in touch with their office via hand-held devices while on the move.

"The City is a fast-moving and dynamic environment and we are responding to the increasing time pressures faced by City workers by providing the technology for them to stay up to date, wherever they are in the City."
