WASHINGTON, June 4, 2010 – With the London Olympics a mere two years away, Mayor Borris Johnson has announced that the city would be fully covered in Wi-Fi.
“Every lamppost and every bus stop will one day very soon… and before the 2012 Olympics…. be Wi-Fi enabled,”
Twenty-two of the city’s 32 boroughs have signed up for this Wi-Fi London initiative. Ofcom, the nation’s primary communications entity, has yet to comment on this new program but it does seem to be in line with the goals set in last year’s Digital Britain Plan.
