London soll flächendeckend WLAN bekommen

London soll bis zu den Olympischen Spielen 2012 flächendeckend WLAN bekommen. Das verkündete der Londoner Bürgermeister: London to Get Full Wi-fi Coverage by 2012 Olympics. Die Gründe dafür sind u.a., dass er gerne London zur Technologie-Hauptstadt machen würde.

Mayor of London, Boris Johnson has promised that “every lampost and every bus stop will one day very soon, and before the 2012 Olympics, be wi-fi enabled.” Speaking at a Google Zeitgeist event held in Hertfordshire, Johnson added London could soon be the technology capital of the world. “Tim Berners-Lee, who invented the internet, was born in London, so we claim paternity of the internet,” the Mayor said. “London is the home of technological innovation. We in City Hall are doing our best to keep up, and one of our most important projects is called Wi-fi London.”

Die WLAN-Antennen sollen wohl an Bushaltestellen und Straßenlaternen angebracht werden. Moment, das kommt uns doch bekannt vor: Die Berliner Politik hatte auch mal große Träume. Die sind aber mittlerweile beerdigt worden, weil WLAN-Antennen an Straßenlaternen u.a. das Straßenbild verunschönern würden.
