Europe's most advanced Wifi network

The City of London, in association with The Cloud, has recently enabled what they're calling 'Europe's most advanced WiFi network' in a deployment across the entire City of London.

127 nodes installed on lamp posts and street signs make up the mesh network which covers 95% of the City's streets, an area of approximately 2.6 square kilometres. A map of coverage is available here.

The service should help people who are out and about keep in touch and up to date on developments and allow access to cheaper telephone calls using VoIP services such as Skype. Access is available through the usual partners of The Cloud such as BT Openzone and iPass. For the first month, Nokia is sponsoring the service to provide free access.
