60 real ale pubs to get Wi-Fi

Sixty Shepherd Neame pubs in Kent, Surrey, London, Sussex and Essex are to get hooked up to wireless broadband by Christmas as the brewery expands its award-winning rural broadband project.

It was drinks all round in June as three pubs celebrated after Kent-based Telabria - which uses the pubs as the "hub" of its RuralMesh wireless broadband project - won a local business technology award. Now, brewer Shepherd Neame is expanding the scheme to help bring wireless broadband to even more of its pubs and local villages. During September, 15 pubs will get wired for high speed net access with others following later this year. The WiFi-enabled service costs £2.99 for an hour or £9.99 for a day. Regular users can subscribe for £24.99 a month.
