Wired for Success
A new London venture launched by London mayor Boris Johnson,
in conjunction with US firm WiredScore, has introduced an IT certification assessment to assess the
quality of connectivity in office
buildings throughout the capital.
As workspaces become increasingly digital and
inter-connected, this venture has been launched to try and encourage property
owners and occupiers to have the best digital infrastructure possible in their office buildings.
Buildings throughout the
capital will be rated on such criteria as bandwidth, reliability and
number of internet providers. Some marque buildings such as 20 Fenchurch Street
and the Leadenhall Building, both located in EC3, have already achieved a “Wired Certification”.
Boris Johnson has been quoted as saying “The scheme will not
only help businesses identify where they can achieve the best broadband speeds,
it will encourage landlords to up their game in the connectivity stakes”.
