Broadband and mobile provider O2 is going to install huge amounts of free WiFi access points (or hotspots) in London in time for the Olympics, the company has announced. This will plug a major gap in services for visiting spectators and address one of the major criticisms of London as a venue. It doesn't look likely to go anywhere near the actual games, mind you.
