Billed as Europe’s most advanced outdoor Wi-Fi network, the paid-for service is seeking to serve the 350,000 people who work in and visit the area.
The network has been built and is operated by Wi-Fi service provider The Cloud. Free access for the first month will be provided in association with Nokia, allowing anyone with a Wi-Fi-enabled device to get online in the City.
The project was first announced over a year ago, and comes as BT is building a number of paid-for city-wide Wi-Fi networks elsewhere in the UK.
Alcatel-Lucent and mobile operator SFR recently announced that they were building a free city-wide Wi-Fi network in Paris, that will serve residents and visitors.
