U.K. Libraries to Get Wi-Fi

e-Minister will make every public library a Wi-Fi hotspot: I want to live in a place where public libraries have Wi-Fi and people still use the word “keen.”

[U.K.] Government minister Stephen Timms […] confirmed that his plan to put an open Wi-Fi hotspot in every public library was “going ahead”. “I’m very keen on the idea that every public library should be a Wi-Fi hotspot,” he said. “Already 90 per cent have broadband, and my department is now working up that idea.”
