Well, it will be soon with obvious implications for all those who work from home/shed. This piece in The Times by Rhys Blakely which looks at how London's Square Mile is now a gigantic wi-fi hotspot thanks to wireless broadband provider The Cloud. "The system has been designed to give 350,000 workers reliable internet access away from their offices via laptops, PDAs and smartphones," writes Blakely. "It echoes other schemes bent on making internet access ubiquitous, championed by groups such as Google in San Francisco. Access to what is being billed as the “densest, most comprehensive city-wide wi-fi network in Europe” will be free for the next month. After that, users will be charged £11.99 a month for “all you can eat” access to broadband speeds of up to 8MBs, or £4.50 for an hour."
