This story is doing the blog-rounds at the moment:

Mobile workers in London will be able to get free
wireless access across a mile-long swathe of the capital, via a Wi-Fi
network financed by Islington Council. Dubbed [by the council] the ‘Technology Mile’, it is [press-released] to be the largest free
public-access wireless network built in the UK so far. Islington
Council took the decision to fund its creation in order to boost
economic activity in the area, and to encourage local residents onto
the Internet.
The network, due to be formally launched on Tuesday, covers the length
of Upper Street — one of the busiest streets in Islington — from The
Angel up to Highbury Corner
