Phased Wi-Fi installation in the City

The Cloud’s outdoor public Wi-Fi network in the City of London will cease from the 6 June 2017.

The City of London has invested in a new, world leading gigabit Wi-Fi network (more advanced than the Wi-Fi network in New York City) which is currently being built by O2 which will:

  • Offer free, ultrafast Wi-Fi connectivity of up to 1 gigabit per access point
  • Use world leading Wi-Fi technology housed on City of London street furniture
  • Provide coverage across the majority of streets and outdoor spaces in the Square Mile

The gigabit Wi-Fi network will be launched in phases across 6 areas, with area 1 being completed by the end of July 2017, and all areas going live by the end of 2017 (see map above).

Users will only be required to log on to the Wi-Fi network (called “O2 Wi-Fi”) once, and will be automatically logged on thereafter if Wi-Fi is switched on their phone or device
