Free WiFi Service For Black Cabs In London

If you are on the lookout for your next holiday destination in Europe, then perhaps you might want to give London in the UK a go. Why so, you ask? Well, Mayor Boris Johnson has promised in the past to make this vibrant city into one giant hotspot, with an approved plan to transform every single black cab into a portable hotspot. A company known as Eyetease has picked up the nod of approval from Transport for London in order to equip their range of black cabs with Wi-Fi antennas. These Wi-Fi antennas will deliver up to 15 minutes of free high-speed data, although the “price” to pay would be to go through a 15-second commercial.

Whenever the iconic black cab rides through the city, the on-board router will dynamically switch between 3G and 4G networks so that a constant (and decent, more importantly) connection can be maintained. Not only that, to ensure that cab drivers get hooked for an early 2013 launch, the CabWiFi service will offer special driver accounts that deliver unlimited and commercial free service.
