London gets a mile of free Wi-Fi – ZDNet UK News: «Mobile workers in London will be able to get free wireless access across a mile-long swathe of the capital, via a Wi-Fi network financed by Islington Council.

Dubbed the ‘Technology Mile’, it is thought to be the largest free public-access wireless network built in the UK so far. Islington Council took the decision to fund its creation in order to boost economic activity in the area, and to encourage local residents onto the Internet.»
