Want to get online while you're out and about? Hotspot provider The Cloud is offering free Wi-Fi access to Londoners.

Workers in the Square Mile will be able to enjoy 15 minutes of free wireless internet access every day with The Cloud under the new deal with the City of London.

Anyone with a wireless-enabled device, such as a netbook,iPad or smartphone, will be able to use the mobile broadband service free of charge.

You can also buy additional minutes on a pay-as-you-go basis if you want to spend more time online.

The Cloud said that it expected more than 350,000 City workers and visitors to log on every day, following the success of the same offer in Glasgow.

Naunton Dickins, managing director at The Cloud, said: "People will find their smartphones work much better on Wi-Fi than on their mobile phone network; no more waiting for apps to appear or photos to download, this is mobile broadband in its true sense.

"This initiative with the City of London reflects our broader ambitions to make London a fully Wi-Fi'd city," he concluded.

The Cloud is made up of more than 5,000 wireless hotspots around the country - a network that was recently acquired by Sky.
