The 2012 London Olympics will kickstart on July 27th which is just around the corner. The British authorities have made a lot of arrangements for the huge event and are trying to make the security as fool-proof as possible. The authorities have dished out a detailed list of items which would be banned from Olympics venues. Surprisingly, wireless hotposts are a part of this list.


This may pose a significant problem for the journalists and reporters who will be covering the event. They will no longer be able to carry around their wireless routers and will most probably have to rely on their mobile hotspots.

The description on the list of banned items includes, “Personal/private wireless access  points and 3G hubs (smart devices such as Android phones, iPhone and tablets are permitted inside venues, but must not be used as wireless access points to connect multiple devices).”

However, it is quite possible that the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) will make wi-fi access available within Olympic venues. In fact, the very reason why LOCOG is banning wireless routers could be that they don’t want any personal Wi-Fi signals to interfere with the official Wi-Fi transmission.

One other possibility could be that LOCOG is enforcing this restriction to further tighten its security. Nonetheless, it would be a challenge for journalists to professionally cover the event without access to a proper Wi-Fi connectivity.
