What is WiredScore?
WiredScore which first launched in 2012 was given the endorsement of Michael Bloomberg, who at the time sat as the Mayor of New York City. In 2015 WiredScore won the Greater London Authority tender to be the official mayor of London’s digital connectivity rating scheme. Their mission to make the world’s buildings smarter and better connected is enabling a more innovative and dynamic future.
