Cisco Systems is collaborating with cities around the world to see if broadband can be exploited to cut down energy consumption and traffic.

Helge: The connected city, commuting, bus riding and wi-fi while you ride. Mobile phoning while on the move hasn't been a big deal for ages. Internet is now ready for the ride. Green and Connected while on the bus. While you are going green. Cisco is showing a pilot project in SF. There is a pilot in Amsterdam as well. Hamburg and Madrid are also among the cities. If this concept succeeds they take this around the world.
