Lincoln requests bids for city centre wireless network
Muniwireless.com writes that Lincoln has issued a request for proposals for bids for the installation of a city centre wireless network.
Lincoln Business Improvement Group (BIG) has received a grant of £150,000 to be used to help fund the cost of building the network; BIG regards this grant as seed money to encourage a service provider to build and operate the network, from which it would receive a share of the revenue. The services envisaged include applications delivered to a Wi-Fi enabled mobile phone such as two-way SMS, along with video surveillance, video conferencing and VoIP telephony.
