Sensation! Traces of intelligent life found in British Telecom!
According to ZD Net, BT has finally got the WiFi message and is proposing to roll out 802.11b hotspots in cafes, airports and other places throughout the UK. Perhaps they read the Observer?
Seriously, though, it looks as though BT is gambling that the government will ease the absurd restriction which makes it illegal to sell 802.11b access in Britain. And that liberalisation will happen in time for their June launch date. Who says optimism is dead?
