Boris Johnson wants London to be a Wi-Fi city with coverage for all citizens. Johnson told BBC News, "What we need is a city where anywhere you go, you can log on, you can get on the web. They've done it in other parts of the world; why on earth can't we do it?"

Despite the big dreams, Johnson offered no methods or plans for actually paying for the massive undertaking. It would be nice to see free Wi-Fi for all, but judging from the cost in the millions to install municipal Wi-Fi networks in America, it will be a while coming.

Johnson also criticized a plan from Gordon Brown that would approve £300 million in vouchers for poor families to buy computers and internet connections.
