London cabs to get free Wi-Fi

FREE Wi-Fi will be arriving in London’s taxis in the coming months after a local startup gained the all-clear from Transport for London to hand out its technology to the capital’s cabbies.

Entrepreneur Richard Corbett’s Eyetease will offer 15 minutes of free internet access following a short advertising video. Corbett said over 500 taxi drivers had shown interest in the technology, and that he had already signed up advertising partners.

CabWifi is expected to launch early next year, with Corbett targeting thousands by year end.
