BT To Beam Wireless Broadband To Cities

BT Group intends to install a network of Wi-Fi hotspots in 12 U.K. cities, including Leeds, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Cardiff and London’s Westminster area, by the end of 2006. Steve Andrews, BT’s chief of converged services, clarified that the plan only constitutes the first phase and that the company expects to expand its coverage. In addition to the networks, the firm also plans to offer a set of information and public services for the local authorities. Another Wi-Fi company, The Cloud, has already set up nine hotspot zones such as London’s Square Mile and Canary Wharf financial districts and Manchester city centre.
