The UK government has just approved a scheme to equip London’s iconic taxis with high speed WiFi, the technology has been developed by UK company Eyetease, and passengers in the London taxis will get access to free WiFi during their journey.
The free WiFi service will play a 15 second advert to passengers, and you will then get 15 minutes of free WiFi during your taxi journey, once your 15 minutes is up you will then be played another 15 second advert and you then get another 15 minutes of free WiFi.
CabWifi™ is a new free high speed wifi service for passengers travelling in London taxis. Eyetease is the first to roll-out this new service in the iconic London black cab. The system uniquely turns 3G and 4G mobile connectivity into a wifi hotspot for passengers.
Eyetease will start rolling out the free WiFi system to the London taxis early next year, you can find out more information over at Eyetease.
