The Solution Fast public wi-fi to key locations – businessincubators, arts venues, public squares
Reflections• Bottom-up broadband: need IP to make any of this work• Respond to need rather – as there are many stakeholders in the city – and good to partner with ones who will do something with it• We can’t control the outcomes – but shouldn’t want to – but we’ve raised expectations and problems with delivering the sensor network have caused difficulties about the city’s ability to deliver• Engage with citizens –hackers, citizen scientists
