Bristol extends pilot Wi-Fi network: The network currently covers three square km. Cityspace will expand this to business districts, "disadvantaged" neighborhoods, and along transportation routes. The current network sees 15,000 users a month. (I'm always a bit dubious about whether in citations like this that the uniqueness extends to 15,000 sessions or 15,000 users.) Video surveillance is, of course, part of what will be rolled out, including nomadic cameras that can be moved about.
BT will build out Westminster in London: The telecom giant says this is the first of 12 areas that will install Wi-Fi across by March 2007. Video surveillance is, of course...didn't I just write that? Ah, it's Blighty, the land of 1,000 cameras in every town.
Southaven, Miss., picks MagnoliaWave: The 36-square-mile town will be unwired with free service in parks and recreation areas. Residential service will be offered to the 40,000 residents in the town.
Framingham plans network: The Mass. town looks to Philadelphia, oddly, citing its network as a model, when that network hasn't yet been built. The network would be used for municipal purposes initially--again, odd to be looking to Philadelphia at this point. They've had a tough time finding a partner, however.
