Channel Four did an interesting piece for the news last night about free wi-fi in Norwich.
Norwich is leading the way in providing wi-fi, but unlike other councils, including many Lib Dem ones, Norwich is pioneering completely free wi-fi, with no costs, hidden charges or fees. They are using a slightly slower speed Broadband so as not to be a direct competitor to super fast broadband speed wi-fi operators, but the service provided is suitable for internet browsing, e-mail, even music downloading and some video downloads.
It is nice to see Norwich leading the way, and particularly good that Norwich is going along the free route, allowing people to share in the technology, not charging them for it.
The is also a nice report HERE, which is about three minutes long, explaining how it all works. But interestingly for me also, as my brother (who works in I.T. pointed out to me, he appears in the reports for about 1 second, near the end, stirring a coffee.
