MK to go wireless – and free!

Silicon.com reports Milton Keynes to be UK’s first wireless city. Wow!

As the project has apparently been in development for around 18 months, I suspect the central MK coffee-shops, hotels and the like that charged patrons for wi-fi access are already aware of the change, so it won’t come as a nasty surprise when that revenue stream suddenly dies. I rarely visit MK, but often whizz through on a train – will I have time to pick up emails when my train stops at the station, I wonder?

Moreover, if you are working on a construction project in the area, this move is likely to support your mobile working needs – depending on the coverage provided by the wireless mesh network, presumably you could log on to your chosen construction collaboration (aka project extranet) solution from anywhere on the construction site – not just from the site cabins.
