Norwich pioneers free city wi-fi

BBC News reports today on 'Norwich pioneers free city wi-fi':

'Norwich is pioneering a free wi-fi project which covers three sectors of the UK city and its centre.

The £1.1m, 18-month pilot has been live for three weeks and is backed by the East of England Development Agency.

Paul Adams, from Norfolk county council said: "It allows people to see the benefit of wireless technology."

The city centre, county hall and educational establishments such as the university all have wi-fi access.'

Hopefully this will become a trend that will see, eventually, most UK cities with FREE wi-fi access - well, why shouldn't I be hopeful?!
