Don’t worry about getting a connection in London. Mayor Boris Johnson has promised to make London into one giant hotspot, with an approved plan to transform every single black cab into a portable hotspot. A company called Eyetease has the approval of the Transport for London in order to equip their range of black cabs with Wi-Fi antennas.
The Wi-Fi antennas will deliver up to 15 minutes of free high-speed data. The price? A 15-second commercial. This should make cab rides more fun. The cab’s on-board router will dynamically switch between 3G and 4G networks so that a constant connection can be maintained.
And to make sure that cab drivers get hooked for an early 2013 launch, the CabWiFi service will offer special driver accounts that deliver unlimited and commercial free service. You can’t beat that.
