A new Wi-Fi service along the 22-kilometre stretch of the River Thames is on offer to users enabling an uninterrupted internet connection.
Thames-Online has created a mesh network that allows users to connect to the internet using its network at unlimited locations around the Thames, including coffee shops, bars and even while surfing the web outside.
There are dozens of access points as part of the network but they will be seen as one continuous hotspot from whichever location you connect from. It’s even possible to surf the web while travelling up and down the River Thames in a boat.
Users can access the network either using a rolling monthly subscription or a pay-as-you-go deal. The service costs £2.95 for one hour’s access; alternatively a day of pay-as-you-go access will cost £5.95. A week’s access will cost £7.95 and one month is priced at a subscription rate of £9.95. The range of wireless broadband service will be extended over the next two months.
