Mike Bloomberg on Technology

Independent possibility for President


Wireless network for better NYPD and NYFD communications

This year, we’ll be launching the New York City wireless network--which allows first responders to get more information, more quickly. Maps, mugshots, rap sheets. It will move us from slow dial-up to high-speed broadband with 100 times the capacity of the old analog system.

At the same time, we’ll expand its functions to serve all of City government--even the more mundane things that influence our quality of life.

Investing in infrastructure critical to competitiveness

Investing in infrastructure is critical to a nation’s competitiveness. China is finishing what will be the world’s largest airport terminal in Beijing. It is building 20,000 km of railway lines and has already built the world’s fastest train, which runs at a top speed of 267 mph. These are the kinds of investments we need more of in America if we are to keep pace with our international competition.
