I don't see it so much as a bug as more of a feature.
Think of the possibilities. Everywhere there is a light,
you have a data stream.


The light programme By Mark Ward

ultrafast internet access via the electricity sounded too good to be true, and
perhaps it was. Trials of the scheme in
Manchester have hit an embarrassing snag.
Streetlamps using the same power supply as Net surfers are
acting as aerials and broadcasting downloaded data as
high-frequency radio waves.
