The Cloud cuts the wires in the Square Mile

The City of London has signed an agreement to blanket the square mile with wi-fi access.

The network, installed and managed by The Cloud, will go live shortly and cover the entire City in the next six months. The blanket wi-fi will provide city workers with wireless internet access for laptops outside of traditional venues such as coffee shops, as well as on the move connectivity for PDAs and mobiles.
