Westminster City Council has struck a deal with BT to provide wireless internet access through lampposts.
Building on the council's Wireless City project (Computing, 5 May), BT will install the WiFi network in lampposts across Soho in London. The council says that internet users will be able to access BT Openzone hotspots by September.
Low-powered microconnect distributed antennas will also be installed, to improve mobile phone and 3G coverage.
'The antennas will be a lot smaller and there won't be the same concerns there are with existing ones,' councillor Simon Milton, leader of Westminster City Council, told Computing.
'We are hoping to remove some of the older ones from the streets and buildings in the area.'
