“Bristol to become smart city laboratory”, Financial Times

As part of a £75m joint experiment carried out by the city council and the University of Bristol, the old Rediffusion infrastructure, that brought cable television to Bristol in the 1970s is being upgraded with superfast, high-capacity fibre as part of an ambitious project to create a living laboratory for research into the future of cities. The project is funded under the UK government’s super-connected cities programme.”
