The Cloud

Inspired Broadcast Networks have just announced that they're building Europe's largest Wi-Fi network in some 20,000 locations in Britain. Called 'The Cloud', it'll have 250 sites by April and plans to be operating 1000 sites by this summer. Most of the locations will be pubs as they'll be piggybacking the network onto existing adsl lines that are currently being used for gaming machines. This looks set to revolutionise wireless access in the UK, and where better to have it than in the pub? Yet another reason to go drinking. BBC News Story
