We can all now rest easier knowing that we’ll be able to get written news of the royal wedding as soon as humanly possible tomorrow: BT has built a temporary hotspot to cover a hotel across from Windsor Castle to serve all the journalists covering Prince Charles’ wedding tomorrow. There’s no pricing information here but I’d assume that journalists will pay a premium to be able to access the network. If it helps them file their stories quicker, the publications they write for are likely glad to foot the bill. Over the past couple years, we’ve seen that venues are increasingly willing and able to build such temporary networks to serve journalists at special events.
