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.
