London Gets Free WiFi Trial, With A View To Rolling Out In 2012 [bbc.co.uk]
Nokia has switched on a trial of a free wi-fi service in central London.
From today until the end of 2011, the public will be able to use the high-speed service in certain parts of the city courtesy of the phone firm.
If the two-month trial is deemed a success, the Finnish company plans to turn it into a fully fledged free wi-fi service early in 2012.
The initiative is one of many that will eventually see London dotted with hotspots offering free net browsing.
