A BT executive said that BT isn’t interested in following in the footsteps of its U.S. counterparts in trying to limit municipal wireless projects: He says that BT is fully supportive of the community wireless projects that have brought innovative services mainly to rural areas. Such networks are fairly widespread in the UK. A networking group submitted a report to the UK government yesterday noting that there are at least 550 small scale wireless networks operating in towns across the UK.
Hopefully BT will sing the same tune once networkers start targeting the big towns. A group called Wireless London was formed earlier this year, aiming to promote free wireless networks that span the city.
