      Free WiFi

      hi everyone,

      I don't know if you saw the gadget show a while back but they were holding a campain for free WiFi, if everything goes accordingly then in the future the whole country should have free WiFi!

      Please visit the link below and put in your name and email address to sign up to the campain, (don't worry its free), the more people there is the higher the chance of the free WiFi.
      Thanks alot, Pricey888

      Its a great idea but I can't see anything like this every happening. The scheme in Norwich only covers parts of the city centre so it would cost billions to cover every town and village in the country and I just can't see it happening.

      like Alan B said, Its too expensive and dont think it would happen!

      The speeds would be max like 512k-2mb and to stop PIRACY several ports will be blocked and browsing limited!

      People will just use their own connections! Also their is a security issue with Global Shared WiFi!

      I dont see this going ahead the max would be like 25% Coverage! From one supplier not like;
      Bt OpenZone in one part
      T-Mobile's WiFi in the other!

      Would be too confusing everyone trying to make their own little profit!
      I see it mainstream in Cafe's and Malls!
      Just not in everyones house!
