London praised for infrastructure shocker

It was with great surprise that I read that more public wireless hotspots any other major city in the world. This makes a pleasant change from stories about our crumbling rail/road and underground networks. Thanks to Fred Barnako's Internet Daily email newsletter for this interesting snipppet:


The number of WiFi Hotspots is now greater than 55,000, according to a report by JiWire.com, a WiFi directory service. The service said London (1,177) is the city with the most places where people can connect to a public wireless network, free or paid, followed by Tokyo (854) and New York (822). The number of Hotspots will double this year, said Kevin McKenzie, CDEO of JiWire. "Hotels and other locations that naturally cater to the business traveler will be large contributors to this rapid growth," he said in a statement.
