Taipei keeps status as top wireless city

The three-day Digital Cities Convention concluded in Taipei yesterday with participating mayors and representatives of local and regional authorities vowing to give their cyber city projects a boost."We declare that we are committed to the following courses of action: To solicit and encourage commitment from representatives of city governments and local and regional authorities to do everything within their power to develop pervasive wireless infrastructure," participants to the Digital Cities Convention declared.
Industry and government leaders also pledged to encourage the exchange of experience and best practice in developing innovative applications and services over a wireless infrastructure, and to develop their cities and regions by improving wireless city services to all citizens and businesses.
Convention participants also promised to foster open discussion of government policies to support harmonization of wireless standards; to prompt all local and regional organizations seeking a more equitable information society to implement the commitments of their declaration; and to facilitate - at the global level - collaboration between international organizations, city governments, local and regional authorities, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.
Hosted by the Taipei City Government and the Wireless Internet Institute, the Digital Cities Convention highlighted Taipei's wireless broadband infrastructure.
On Thursday, JiWire, a public Wi-Fi company, presented Taipei Mayor Ma Ying-jeou with a certification confirming that Taipei's Wi-Fi network is the "world's largest and densest."
Earlier this month, Taipei also bagged the "2006 Intelligent Community of the Year" award from the Intelligent Community Forum in New York.
