at the Chinese owned Huawei smart city event in London.
London and Bristol are Britain’s leading “smart cities”, according to research commissioned by the Chinese owned Huawei UK through Navigant Consulting. Peterborough scrapes in at 8 out of 10.
The expensive report will come as a bitter blow to the conservative led Peterborough City Council who through their secretive council owned 'Blue Sky' Technology Company (no one seems to know exactly how much has been spent especially during the 'Cereste' era, as the factual spend is buried deep in the councils accounts....) has allegedly spent eye-watering amounts of taxpayer funded public money on beefing up digital technology, much of which is being spent by the council as US dollars in US (Las Vegas !!!) based Amazon cloud computing, rather than investing with local and regional technology companies. The City of Peterborough scrapes in at number 8 out of 10 (Leeds at number 7) and as the final entrant in the contenders*** sub-category.
