The UK is definitely going somewhere:
The United Kingdom has unveiled plans for citywide Wi-Fi networks that will give residents in nine cities high-speed wireless Internet access from laptops, PDAs and mobile phones.Yep - that's the same The Cloud that provides cheap access for Skype.
The first phase of the project, due to be completed by March 2006, will see citywide Wi-Fi hot spots rolled out in Birmingham, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham and Oxford, along with the London boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea, Camden and Islington.
The networks are being built by European wireless provider The Cloud.
Wifi+Voice-ofer-IP telephony, anyone? Why pay for calls or SMS text messages when you can chat on Skype for free, or call for free from your laptop using VoipStunt?
