Can you get home wireless broadband in London?


Is it possible yet to get a completely wireless broadband connection in
your home in London on a desktop computer?
The only thing I have seen close is the Orange offer but that requires
you to have a BT phone line which says to me that this is a hybrid
phone/wireless internet not wireless broadband?
TIA,
Pep.

Full wireless connectivity, that is, you have a wireless adapter on your computer and receive a wireless signal from 'somewhere' without benefit of a wired connection to your house, is VERY rare. Some cellular phone companies do have this type of connection. One purchases a wireless PC card, just like one does a cell phone, and use the card to connect to the cellular broadband system. The fee for this type of service is not inexpensive in the US.
The systems that broadcast a wireless signal that can be picked up by a normal PC-Card, exclusive of cell phone systems, is called WiMAX, and is under development, probably at least three to five years in the future for general access.
