Wi-Fi in Manchester

BBCNews reports in 'Manchester plans free city wi-fi' how Manchester could become the biggest free wireless internet hotspot in Europe - great news!

'The network, inspired by projects in San Francisco and Amsterdam, would cover 90% of Greater Manchester and reach up to 2.2 million people. Councillors believe the initiative could make the city a leader in driving the UK into the digital age.

An open day inviting comments on the plans is being held on 15 December.Interested businesses or individuals can contribute to the debate at the Town Hall event either openly or in confidence.The initiative is part of Manchester's bid in the government's Digital Challenge Initiative, a competition that will select a region to qualify for up to £3m in funding.'
