Reader wants Camden wi-fi expanded

Now that Christmas has come and gone I am sure there are a number of new iPad's, laptop computers and more wireless adapted electronics in use.

It would be an asset to the community to see the coverage area expanded more than it is now.

Is your hero brave and courageous, does he act on his own accord for his or her fellow human being, risking his or her life? Then possibly you may know and respect the meaning of a hero.
