The London 2012 Olympic Games will be the most connected ever, according to a leading UK broadband provider.

BT, which has delivered telecoms and communications infrastructure across the various Olympic sites, says athletes, organisers, the media and spectators will have unprecedented levels of connectivity.

The firm said it has constructed Europe's highest-density wireless broadband network on-site, offering "levels of access not seen at previous Olympic Games", reports TechWeek Europe.

"We’ve been training for four and a half years for this fantastic opportunity," said Howard Dickel, Client Partner at the BT London delivery programme.

"The key thing from a BT perspective is that for the first time we are operating an integrated network."

He sad BT had delivered as much Wi-Fi capability as is possible within the laws of physics.

"If you have too many [hotspots] there’s too much interference and you get diminishing returns," Mr Dinkel stated.
