…because London needs more stuff that the rest of the UK doesn’t get to experience.
As part of a trial detailed by Bitter Wallet, Nokia are offering free Wi-Fi in Central London until the end of 2011, with a view to switching it on permanently in time for the Olympic Games in 2012.
There’s no doubt that I would love to be able to hop on the interwebs whilst out and about – sometimes you have to know about what random fellow geeks on forums are saying about stuff which really doesn’t matter, even if you’re waiting for the bus – but I get the feeling that such services are inevitably undone by the people who use them. Any bets on just how long it will be before all manner of wireless malware and nasties are being spread via public access points?
Always looking on the bright side of life, that’s me.
