Can Westminster Really Set Up A WiFi Zone In A Month?

In the US, it’s always been good news when a local municipality tries to set up a “WiFi Zone” in order to attract more people or businesses. However, in the UK, it appears that people look at it differently. They complain that the Westminster council is being too aggressive in their rollout schedule and (even worse) are going to cause overlap problems between their own WiFi access points and those of other hotspot providers, like Starbucks. Of course, some of the complaining sounds like what you might expect from someone who feels that the government backed WiFi is going to compete with their own plans.
