The Cloud launched one of Europe's largest WiFi networks in London. The mesh network offers continuous connectivity to more than 350,000 users located in the 2.6-square kilometer city borough. Users can "walk from one end of the area to the other without losing your connection," a spokesman for the company said.
London's network is part of The Cloud's nationwide WiFi service available for £12 ($17.70) per month for unlimited access with a year contract. Nokia, which is subsidizing the first month of free usage, is collaborating with The Cloud to promote the use of new WiFi enabled devices, according to The Cloud spokesman. BelAir Networks supplied the mesh technology, used to connect the more than 127 WiFi base stations in the financial district.
