The Cloud Activates WiFi Mesh Across the City of London

The Cloud activated a Wi-Fi mesh network across the entire City of London -- the famous Square Mile. The project, described as the densest network of its kind in Europe, was built and is operated by The Cloud under a "neutrality" approach endorsed by the City of London. The Cloud will ensure other service providers can use the network, including O2, BT Openzone, iPass, Truphone and Skype on various handsets. Free access for the first month will be provided in association with Nokia.

BelAir Networks supplied the mobile broadband mesh technology for the network, which currently comprises 127 nodes.
