City of London gets Wi-Fi

The Cloud gets the gig

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Corporation of the City of London has chosen The Cloud to install a Wi-Fi network to cover the Square Mile.

The project will go live within the next few months with full coverage within six months. Equipment will be installed in lamp posts and street signs in the Square Mile, giving City workers and visitors wireless internet access wherever they are.

The network is to be open for other operators to use - users can sign up directly through The Cloud website, but most customers will get access through their own providers.

Michael Snyder, chairman of the City of London's policy committee, said: "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."
