London Olympic Venues ban mobile WiFi hotspots

With the London Olympics just a few days away punters will be looking to see what items they can and cannot bring into the venues under the new restrictions

 

The London Olympics 2012 Organising Committee has released the full list of restricted items allowed in the Olympics Venues and among them is the use of WiFi mobile hotspots.

In a pdf issued by the LOOC the leaflet gives a very complete description of what is and isn't allowed saying: “Personal/private wireless access points and 3G hubs (smart devices such as Android phones, iPhone and tablets are permitted inside venues, but must not be used as wireless access points to connect multiple devices).”

Among the other items that have been banned punters will only be allowed to bring in 100ml of liquids surely forcing them to find refreshment once inside the venues.

The banning of mobile hotspots however will surely be difficult to police with most modern smartphone including the Apple iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S3 sporting the feature.

While some make more sense than others such as the carrying of fake firearms, the more bizarre restrictions include oversized hats, flags and clothing which could in any way advertise a company that isn't one of the official Olympics sponsors.
