Cloud Welcomes Ofcoms Wi-Fi Move

Posted: 28th Jul, 2006 By: MarkJ
Wi-Fi Hotspot operator The Cloud has welcomed a move by Ofcom to allow higher-powered Wi-Fi (for 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz) transmitters in the UK, which could aid coverage, especially in rural areas:

Niall Murphy, co-founder of The Cloud, told ZDNet UK that the regulator's plan means rural areas would have a better chance of getting coverage from wireless access providers.

"It means that the economics of deploying in lower density areas are improved, because with certain outdoor coverage scenarios it increases the range per kit ratio," Murphy said on Friday.

"Right now it would be tough for us to make a business case to deploy outdoor coverage in a rural village because there aren't enough people per square metre to justify the capital investment."

ZDNet reports that the consultation is expected to continue until 20th September.
