BBC NEWS | Scotland | Internet lampposts to be trialled: "Smart lampposts that could provide high-speed internet access are set to go on trial in Scotland.
The idea will be piloted later this month in Dundee but could spread further afield.
Backers of the project plan to install six of the solar-powered, internet-capable lights on a rooftop at the University of Abertay.
Later in the year they plan to install up to 4,000 more in a student village to be built for the university.
The idea will combine lampposts with solar energy and wi-fi wireless internet access. "
