Helsinki to provide WiFi hotspots in public transportation

The City of Helsinki, despite some of its failings, is also doing some cool stuff. Examples include promotion of greener rail traffic, and increasing number of free WiFi hotspots.

So far these have been stationary, but now Helsinki City Transport is piloting WiFi in buses and trams. Helsingin Sanomat reports:

Some Helsinki buses and trams will deploy wireless internet access in January. Trams and buses providing access can be recognized by the WLAN signs at the doors.

According to Helsinki City Transport planning director Ville Lehmuskoski HCT is ready to increase wireless connectivity quickly in its vehicles if the pilot is successfull.

Great! Now the only question remaining is how to mark a moving hotspot in Plazes.
