Bristol’s wifi beach

Bristol’s latest summer attraction, the urban beach down on the Redcliffe stretch of the city docks (otherwise known as ‘Harbourside’ by the city’s bright young things), now has wifi thanks to Bristol Wireless.

“Bails and I set up wireless for the urban beach project in Redcliffe last week. The opening was on Saturday and it all went well.

We put a WRT45G on to an existing omni, ran power to the device and configured a splash page to advertise the beach for demos”.

Bristol Wireless’ chair Pete Ferne has some pictures of the urban beach and evidence of some cider-fuelled wifi activity on his Flickr pages.
