Newcastle To Become Wireless City

Posted: 13th Nov, 2006 By: MarkJ
The Newcastle City Council has signed an agreement with BT to create a ‘Wireless City’. Engineers will install equipment on existing street furniture and lamp posts in the city centre to create the network:

Once this is live, in March 2007, it will enable people to communicate from laptops and Wi-fi enabled mobile devices wherever they are – accessing and updating information while on the move.

Even though wireless access such as BT Openzone is already available in places such as the airport, hotels and coffee shops, the new partnership will make this service available in a large area of the city centre. The network will bring together the very latest technologies and applications for use by public services, businesses and people.

BT will be responsible for funding the rollout of the Wireless Cities Network. The development and operational costs of the network will be borne entirely by BT, with no cost burden on the tax payer for the provision and management of the network.

Sadly the eGov Monitor piece gives no information about possible service speeds or pricing.
