A cidade luz será a cidade “desplugada” em 2007…

Paris Wi-Fi in grand plan

JULY 05, 2006
PARIS wants blanket wireless internet cover by the end of 2007,
helping to make it the most connected capital city in the world,
Mayor Bertrand Delanoe says.

Under a new plan, the city hopes to set up 400 free Wi-Fi access
points next year and allow internet service providers to install
antennae on strategically-located public property.

“We will act fast and firmly… to create the most favourable
conditions for Paris,” Mr Delanoe said. “It is a decisive tool for
international competition and thus important for the city.”
