BT has confirmed that it is on track to have 500,000 wi-fi hotspots across the capital in time for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The telco, which is also the official communication services partner for the Games, has said that there could be more 'potential' wi-fi users in any one place, than any other event before.
It is hoped that a dense wi-fi network across the Olympic park will ease congestion on the mobile phone networks, as it is expected that this will be the most data-intensive Games yet. In Beijing 20 percent of the traffic on the network was video and 80 percent was other data, whilst in London this is set to change to 80 percent video and 20 percent other data.
